The Conservatoire for Dance and Drama has formally adopted the IHRA definition of antisemitism
Celebrating diversity and working to achieve the creative potential in all our students is at the heart of the work of the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama and its schools. All Conservatoire schools are committed to selecting, training and supporting students, regardless of ethnicity, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation or religion.
As part of this commitment to tackle discrimination in all its forms, CDD and its constitute member schools have now officially adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) Working Definition of Antisemitism:
‘Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.’
This definition will be adopted in relevant policies going forward.
