"Talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not"*. As the recent events in the United States have shown, there are pressing measures to be taken in the fight against racism. At Fonact, we are fully committed to the global movement of Black Lives Matter and the fight against systemic racism. We stand as allies in this movement and with the LGBTQ+ community with the same passion that drives our activity at Fonact. To enable greater diversity and equal opportunity, we are creating clear and transparent policies, as well as appointing a Diversity Committee. We strive to create an environment in which unconscious bias is dismantled and in which racism and prejudice are never tolerated. We are also actively engaged in the search for external support to educate ourselves further and to understand where we must do better. We understand that we have much to learn and are ready to embark on this journey. Our full-time programme welcomes any artist from around the world that shares our love and passion for theatre. As we continue to grow, we want to continue attracting diverse faculty and students. We want to support real change and create a world we are proud of and an environment where each and every one of our students thrives.
