At ONCA, we acknowledge structural exclusion in the arts, and are actively striving to make ONCA a more inclusive organisation. We are keen to encourage applications from people who may face barriers to opportunities in the arts (e.g. BME/POC, LGBTQ+, disabilities). Click here to read our Equal Opportunities Policy.
