Over the last year, we have been hosting a series of events called Stand Up For Diversity, inviting artists, arts organisations, communities and individuals to come along and talk about their own work, and why Diversity Matters in the arts and in our communities. The events are in partnership with Essex Cultural Diversity Project, and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Essex County Council and Arts Council England.

This short film gives you a snapshot from our Colchester event in Autumn 2017, hosted by the Mercury Theatre.
