Major research project on equality, diversity and inclusion in performing arts programs across Canada
The National Circus School has received a three-year grant of nearly $360,000 towards a major research project of its Center for Circus Arts Research, Innovation and Knowledge Transfer (CRITAC). Involving equality, diversity and inclusion in performing arts programs across Canada, this initiative will be undertaken in partnership with Canada’s National Ballet School and National Theatre School of Canada.
The funds will be used to determine the current state of awareness-building programs involving people from communities seeking equity. Efforts will be directed towards working with them to understand their needs and perspectives. This data will be used to eventually develop tools and resources to support the future development and expansion of various programs, all aligned with the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion.
