A guide designed to highlight DEIA resources for the performing arts including recommendations for diversifying your repertoire and suggestions for further reading.

Using This Guide

This guide is designed to highlight diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) resources for the performing arts -- from diversifying your repertoire to researching the topic itself. It covers dance, music, and theatre and it's only a selection of the many resources available for each discipline.

Resources in this guide are organized by discipline. Use the tabs to the left to explore the pages of the guide! Each discipline's page also contains sub-pages with information about materials you can check out from the Library as well as online resources -- you don't want to miss them!
