Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Decolonization at the School of Creative and Performing Arts

April 1, 2021

The events of 25 May 2020 were the catalyst for an unprecedented international mobilization focussed on urgent issues of racism and discrimination. While the death of George Floyd galvanized a global sense of outrage, it also served to highlight a necessity for change that has a long, complex and deeply troubling history. To face and address these dynamics, we are currently working on a range of initiatives with the objectives of community consultation, self-education, and concrete short-, medium- and long-term action.


Why Creative and Performing Arts?

Our aim is to reimagine artistry for the 21st century through a careful balance of tradition and innovation. We explore both disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives on dance, drama and music. We engage with history and the contemporary world in order to become rigorously trained and intellectually agile.
