KCACTF Diversity Statement

Diversity in thoughts and ideas are the backbone of artistic creation. Often it is the clash or juxtaposition or reexamination of the “tried and true” that makes for exciting and new artistic creation. A diversity of thought and perspective makes our organization stronger and more relevant. And the sharing of these diverse perspectives is central to our educational mission. Therefore, diversity should be essential and integral to our approach. Educational excellence that truly incorporates diversity thus can promote mutual respect and make possible the full, effective use of the talents and abilities of all to foster innovation and train future artistic leadership in American theater.

Therefore, the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival affirms its commitment to being inclusive and respectful in all aspects of its programming, and regional and national leadership. We vow to nurture talent in all areas of theater based on merit and achievement, regardless of economic or social status and will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnic origin, national origin, creed, religion, political belief, sex, gender, gender identity, weight, physical or mental disability, marital status, or age. Respondents are encouraged to avoid discriminatory comments that deride artistic choices based on any of the aforementioned areas. Instead, choices that “break tradition” should be discussed in a respectful and collegial way that challenges long-held practices and beliefs and encourages further exploration, leading to more dramatic and long lasting discoveries.
