Core values

Malmö Theater Academy's core values are rooted in the laws that a Swedish government agency must follow.

Lund University shall be a place free from discrimination, with zero tolerance for harassment, sexual harassment and victimization. We also have zero tolerance for reprisals against those who report deficiencies or misconduct.

Malmö Theater Academy has long been actively working on diversity, gender equality and equal treatment with the aim of incorporating and systematizing the issues in the business. Examples of this have been to review the selection of texts and authors, to ensure equal treatment and safe spaces at admission tests, and to increase the amount of gender literature in the school's library. In 2017, a working group was also formed to discuss and manage the many issues raised by the #metoo and #silence campaigns.

We also work actively to broaden recruitment and consider it crucial for the future of the performing arts that actors and playwrights with different backgrounds, perspectives and stories are trained. If not, the performing arts risk losing their relevance and democratic value.

Our safety officers represent both students and staff in incidents and occupational injury investigations. The safety representatives also participate in the preventive work environment work and are represented in the local safety committee that acts as an advisor to the artistic faculty management. The Theater Academy's systematic preventive work against discrimination (SFAD) is followed up and reported annually at both faculty and university level.
