Equalities & Diversity

We hope to make Macrobert Arts Centre more accessible and inclusive; to make our building, communications and programming fit the needs of the individual as opposed to the majority and to improve our services not only to our current audiences and participants but also open our doors to those who are yet to access us.

Macrobert Arts Centre began its Promoting Equalities Project (PEP) in January 2013. Thanks to Creative Scotland funding we have been able to embark on an extensive journey to improve our equalities practice.

The scope of this project has been vast and not without its barriers. However with the help of our audiences and participants, practitioners and experts along with our own Macrobert staff we hope to have improved equality practice within our organisation in the following areas:

  1. Policy Development and Decision Making
  2. Creative Learning and Programming
  3. Audience Development and Communication
  4. Building
  5. Recruitment and Training

We are not at the end of this journey - we have a long way to go, but we are hopeful that the small steps that we have started to take are making a difference.

Within this plan we hope to show a snap shot of the actions that have already been taken over the past 2 years but also what we aim to do in order to become an Arts Centre for all.
