Inclusion

Nous sommes convaincus que c’est dans la nature des arts de brandir un miroir critique de la société, et de briser les barrières  entre ses différents groupes. Cependant, notre secteur reflète-t-il fidèlement les communautés dans lesquelles nous vivons ?

Ce débat met en avant la nécessité d’ouvrir les arts à toute la société – à toutes les classes, les ethnicités, les religions, les capacités physiques, et les milieux qui la constituent.

Aujourd’hui, avec l’afflux de réfugiés et la diversité croissante au sein des pays de l’UE, nous nous efforçons plus que jamais d’amener ce sujet au cœur du débat public et politique.

The live performance sector - that is still today the main source of employment for performers throughout the world - is a very dynamic one. It has existed for centuries and has always been able to adapt. The pressures it is now confronted with are largely driven by the crisis-ridden global economic context and the expansion of IT and its related new technologies. This document reveals the numerous challenges that need to be overcome. This report presents the results of a survey conducted by tFIA (International Federation of Actors) in summer 2014.

The arrival and presence of refugees in Europe remains a critical issue. The policies of national and supranational governmental organizations are by and large ineffective and often hostile. Self-organizing grass-root initiatives of citizens in many different European cities and across countries have endeavoured to compensate for what the political ruling class is failing to do.

I think the fact that I’m a trans person who has played cis [short for cisgender, or not transgender] characters invalidates a lot of biases that have kept trans people from being cast. Just like some people believe that gay or lesbian actors can’t play straight actors, there is a similar bias that trans people can’t play cis.

Cultural policies which ensure freedom of expression and promote creativity are essential for a country's long-term development.

"Intercultural communication also matters for international political achievements. Policy makers tend to talk over each other, rather than with each other, in global governance systems due to the lack of intercultural exchange." Helly, D. 2016.

The creative case for diversity advocates one conversation about art - how it is created and engaged with, how it innovates and communicates - with the true value of diversity and equality at the heart of it. Everyone has a stake and a say in the creative case

FIA’s recently published "Handbook of Good Practices to Combat Gender Stereotypes and PromoteEqual Opportunities in Film, Television and Theatre in Europe" flagged up many interesting practices, among which was the development and use of a “Gender Checklist” in the live performance sector in Sweden. The Gender Equality Checklist contains questions on how gender equality is ensured in all work-related aspects in the performing arts, from planning of rehearsals to ways of working, casting, costuming, make up, marketing, etc. The list is designed as a tool to help identify possibilities and...
