Equity and Diversity in the Arts

Equity and Diversity in the Arts (EDA) is an initiative of the Department of Arts, Culture and Media. EDA’s mandate is to promote diversity of all kinds, including diversities of race, gender, socio-economic status, sexual orientation or identity, age, ability or disability, religion and aesthetics or traditions of practice. Through student bursaries, artistic or scholarly residencies, research projects and targeted support for courses and events, it aims to increase understanding across difference, to challenge social and institutional barriers to equity, and to empower students to champion diversity in their professional pursuits.
