London College of Fashion and the National Theatre diversify backstage

A drive to produce more costume, hair and make-up artists from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds called 'Think Differently' is being launched by the National Theatre and London College of Fashion.

The two organisations have committed to diversifying the theatre industry’s future workforce by nurturing and supporting non-white costume designers, as well as non-white specialists working in hair, make-up and prosthetics.

The National has a string of diversity targets in place both on and off stage.
