Fair Play On Screen with Diversity Arts

Posted by Team APATA | Jul 7, 2022

Do you want to engage in cultural best practices in the Australian screen industry? Are you and your team hoping to develop knowledge and skills to become more equitable and inclusive in an authentic way?

Diversity Arts Australia (DARTS) with support from Screenrights is offering masterclasses to strengthen the sector in its diversity, equity and inclusion goals.

This online program is delivered in 12 sessions over a seven week period. Participants can sign up for as many or as few sessions as they like!

All masterclasses are led by diversity, equity and inclusion experts in the screen and creative sectors with lived experience of the issues and topics being explored. The series is designed to be intimate (a maximum of 25 participants per session), interactive and practical. All sessions will be run on Zoom.

The Fair Play On Screen Masterclass Series is for companies and individuals interested in:

• Improving racial and intersectional equity in the Australian screen sector by building capacities to work with underrepresented communities, particularly culturally and linguistically diverse people, people of colour, migrants and refugees.

• Reaching their full potential by achieving diversity, inclusion and equity objectives.

• Learning practical and actionable strategies to make a change—in recruitment and leadership to programming and audience development.

• Identifying persistent systemic barriers and helping build culturally safe practices.

• Genuinely improving accessibility, equity and inclusion in the sector.

Two specific sessions on Developing an Equity Action Plan will allow participants to come away with the tools to develop a clear Equity Action Plan/Diversity and Inclusion Plan.

The series is designed for screen companies, businesses, organisations and independent screen professionals.

WHEN: 18 July – 2 September 2022
