On The RISE: April Events

RISE (Representation, Inclusion, & Support for Employment) seeks to build a more equitable and inclusive theatre industry by centralizing DEIA tools and resources through a network of partners and a national personnel directory that focuses on folks from underrepresented backgrounds, including but not limited to people of color, women, trans, nonbinary, deaf, and disabled theatre professionals.

RISE Theatre is a program of Maestra Music.

Our network partners are hosting some great events this month. Check out what’s On the RISE in the RISE Theatre Network.

Released today, these are the latest findings from the first ever UK Musicians’ Census, the largest ever survey of its kind by Help Musicians and the Musicians’ Union.” Read and download the full report on Help Musicians here!
