Our Diversity Statement

This house is your house.

Across everything we do, we work to give people the power to build their own creative communities, through inspiring stories and shared creative experiences: this house is your house.

As we blend theatre, library, restaurant and cinema services, we share inspiring stories and stage creative events which empower people to nurture their creativity and connect communities. We create belonging. Through our work, we hope to build a more connected, inclusive, creative community of communities.

The more open we are to the true and rich diversity of our communities, the more vividly we will fulfil our purpose. More engagement by more of our communities will make more of Storyhouse.

We are committed to creating a team which is representative of our communities and to bringing together those with a variety of skills and experiences to help shape what we do and how we work.
