Audience Diversity Academy

The impact of the ADA on Hull Truck Theatre

Ruth Puckering, Director of Communications, talked to CultureHive Editor Hannah Mason about the ripple effect that taking part in the Audience Diversity Academy has had at Hull Truck Theatre. The impact of the ADA on Hull Truck Theatre October 12th, 2018Hannah Mason

The Audience Diversity Academy is an initiative which helps drive organisational change. It addresses a key sector challenge — building new and diverse audiences from the whole of society. We use the word diversity in its broadest sense.

The entire programme takes place online. Fellows are encouraged to work in an agile way and experiment with ways of engaging new and diverse audiences by delivering work-based experiments with the support of international Mentors. They also get time to share their experiences, learn from peers and take part in online workshops.

Our Fellows represent arts, culture and heritage organisations across England. We also offer Joint Fellowships for two people from the same organisation to take part.
