Diverse Casting

Programme-makers are increasingly being asked to cast more diversely to reflect the ethnically diverse society we live in, with projects such as Creative Diversity Network (CDN)’s Project Diamond and Channel 4’s 360° Diversity Charter having recently launched.  This masterclass delivers a deeper understanding of this new environment through open and honest conversation, tried & tested techniques, enabling you to cast diversely with confidence.
