Diversity and inclusion is an important part of human endeavour and experience, this is especially true for those in the creative industries. The Institute of the Arts Barcelona views diversity and inclusion as a critical part of learning— interdisciplinary education, being part of different types of thinking, culture and socio-economic backgrounds—that goes toward creating a well-rounded, socially and culturally rich society.
As society changes, social issues such as identity and culture change at an ever faster rate. As artists, it is those very issues that are part and parcel of the creative artist’s profession. The ability to understand, appreciate and utilise the attributes of a diverse society and changing culture is the hallmark of an international career.
As an educational institution that fully supports diversity and inclusion, the Institute of the Arts Barcelona evolves with a changing world. Our students benefit from this by learning in a conservatory environment with a rich multi-cultural student body, teaching staff and administrative staff.
The Institute’s non-profit foundation, Fundación Stellar, ensures inclusion for students who are talented but otherwise unable to afford an education at the Institute of the Arts Barcelona.
