Inc Arts Minds is a service that provides free group therapy for the ethnically diverse arts workforce. Thank you to our supporters for making this critical care available to so many affected by racism in the arts and cultural sector.
We need your support to continue this offering to the African diaspora, Asian diaspora and ethnically diverse people working in the arts. Help us provide this essential service by donating.
About Inc Arts Minds

Whether you're a performer, musician, stage manager, creative, producer or someone working in other capacities in the arts, museums and libraries in the UK you can have FREE counselling support to help you in these challenging times.

Over the last seven months we have been working with the industry to raise funds for this initiative and many have stepped up. See the Donor List below.
Recent Olivier Award-winner Francesca Moody says, “This fund is desperately needed for those in theatre experiencing racism. Supporting Inc Arts Minds is one more step in making the lasting change that our industry needs. We already know that diversity makes organisations stronger, productions better and enriches the theatrical life of this country. FMP is delighted to be part of that.”
Dan Bates, Chief Executive, Sheffield Theatres says, “We are making active changes in our thinking and practice around these issues. This is only one of many actions that need to be taken by our industry. Part of that is acknowledging the past and beginning to undo what has been done. I can’t think of a better way than by contributing to the Inc Arts Minds fund."
Sean Foley, Artistic Director, Birmingham Repertory Theatre says, "Collaborations such as Inc Arts Minds, which brings together a number of sources from within our industry, give the best possible platform to tackle issues head on - and will help enable us to move toward our goal of reflecting the diversity of Birmingham and becoming an anti-racist organisation. The REP is proud to join fellow producers and venues in this important new initiative."
