Guaranteed Interview Scheme for Black and/or Disabled Applicants


Open Theatre recognises the long-term systemic barriers which have prevented black artists & cultural workers from thriving in the industry.

As part of our commitment under the More than a Moment initiative to combat these barriers, we are operating a Guaranteed Interview Scheme for any applicants from black* backgrounds who meet the Essential Criteria in the Personal Specification.

We are equally committed to providing opportunities for disabled artists, including those identifying as neurodivergent, autistic or as having autism, as having learning disabilities or differences, or mental health conditions. The Guaranteed Interview Scheme will apply to anyone applying who meets the Essential Criteria in the Personal Specification, and identifies as disabled.

* We have adopted the Black Ticket Project‘s definition of ‘Black’: as of Black African, Caribbean, Afro-Latinx and African-American heritage, including those of mixed-Black heritage who identify as such (More Than A Moment).
