Access and participation Brighton: June newsletter

10 June, 2022

Access and Participation supports specific groups of students to access higher education, improve their success and support career development where there might have been past challenges. We’re dedicated to making higher education more equal and fairer.

In our new monthly APC newsletters, we’ll be covering everything thats going on at ICTheatre Brighton. Including student societies, charity campaigns, events, deals, housing, training. Anything that our incredible APC team are doing to help support our Training Professionals.

Here’s a round-up of what’s going on this June:


Gypsy, Traveller, Roma, Showman and Boater (GTRSB) History Month

Friends, Families and Travellers - "What makes a home" Poster - June 2022, Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month

June 1st marks the beginning of Gypsy, Traveller, Roma, Showman and Boater History Month?

GTRSBHM is the month to celebrate the history of the Gypsy, Traveller, Roma, Showman and Boater community

Here at ICTheatre, we believe in equality of opportunity, and as such we have signed the GTRSB into Higher Education pledge.

GTRSBHM helps to tackle prejudice, challenge myths and stereotypes, and amplifies the voices of the Gypsy, Traveller, Roma, Showman and Boater communities in wider society.

Despite living and working throughout Britain for as long as 500 years, the history and culture of the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller community is largely absent from British History and this inclusive event aims to address this absence and encourage deeper understandings relating to these communities by raising awareness.

GTRSB History Month is an opportunity to celebrate the communities culture, inform, rejoice and remember.

Later on this month, we will be sharing a short film on one of our Showman students, so do keep an eye out!
