Have Your Say: We Are People Plan


On behalf of CentreStage, we invite you to participate in a 90-minute session to explore the values of community theatre now and how to prepare for the shifting cultures we continue to strive to become. This document and findings will be voluntarily shared with the greater community to adapt as required and ultimately improve the inclusive nature of community theatre.

At CentreStage we pledge to continue to celebrate the stories that educate, entertain and inspire us; just as the Wadawurrung have done for 1000’s of years. As we continue to expand we update our policies to reflect this important history, our vision is to ensure our company reflects a culture that is shared and proudly embraced by all people, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. CentreStage will create opportunities, and ensure that our intentions translate into meaningful action and positive outcomes.


The subsequent framework draws on the values and introduces cultural characteristics and indicators that anchor our people’s everyday experiences and interactions. Our culture must shift to match the desired behaviours of a high-performing workforce that are supported to deliver a successful world-leading culture. This will require strategies that build trust, transparency, and accountability in all areas of our relationships. As custodians of the ecosystem, the Board must also bring its Partners on this journey.


The Framework will lay the foundations to realise the culture that we aspire to achieve. The cultural landscape shift will be gradual, but necessary to work toward building a high-performing culture with support for employee wellbeing at its heart.


I welcome you to the CentreStage family and hope you enjoy your time with us. May you build friendships and memories that last a lifetime.
