Performing Arts students at Southwark College set up an exhibition to raiseawareness of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI). They designed aart display and live dance performance reflecting their backgrounds, heritage and culture.

Music students collated and showcased a range of marginalised musicians to celebrate diversity and highlight why they feel inspired by these artists. The live performance put together by dance students paid homage to their ethnic backgrounds and included musical and choreographic elements of Africa, the Caribbean and Eastern Europe.

Over the coming weeks, students and staff from each curriculum area will beexpressing what EDI means to them, to help raise awareness of these principlesand to encourage all to embrace diversity.

Annette Cast, Principal at Southwark College,said: “Equality, Diversity and Inclusion are central tenets of our College’s culture and we instill this in everything we do. I’m very proud of our students’ work and the exhibition and incredible dance performance they have produced to celebrate the diversity of our student body; I look forward to seeing what our other learners will create over the coming weeks.” 

Sara Gebremi ChaeilLevel 3 Dance student at Southwark Collegecommented: “Sharing elements of my culture with my peers has given me an opportunity to showcase another side of my identity and to recognise the importance of EDI within the College. It has opened my eyes to the artistic value in diversity and I’m looking forward to including my heritage in my future work.”
