Diversity and Inclusion Policy
The Barn Theatre seeks to foster a diverse and inclusive creative environment, welcoming to all members of our community. We recognize that differences in age, race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, physical ability, and background bring richness to the world and to the stories we tell on our stage. We believe that attracting, encouraging, and developing strong relationships with actors, directors, designers, artists, technicians, crew members, volunteers, and audience members from a across the spectrum of humanity strengthens our craft as well as our society. The Barn Theatre is committed to openness, safety, transparency, and the pursuit of improving ourselves through the production of beautiful, accessible theater.
We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards.

Additional Accessibility Considerations
We have also applied some WCAG Level AAA Success Criteria:
- We skipped some heading levels.
- We have tried to strike a balance in screen contrast between visibility and aesthetics.
While The Barn Theatre strives to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of The Barn Theatre website.
