Our values

Alarms & Excursions embraces and celebrates diversity in all its forms and thrives on the added perspective and creativity that brings. This is evident in the backgrounds and breadth of experience of our members and the artists we work with.

 

We oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination and will champion fair treatment for all, regardless of age, ability, gender, marital status, caring or parental responsibility, race, faith or belief, sexual orientation or economic status. We will not discriminate against people with a history of offending or substance abuse. We extend these values to those individuals and organisations we interact with wherever possible - members, collaborators, partners and staff.

 

Our priorities are always to create great work, do good and have fun.
