Diversity and Inclusion
At The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts, we celebrate and foster inclusion through the unique attributes, characteristics, abilities, and perspectives of all individuals. As part of our core mission, we are dedicated to creating a diverse and inclusive cultural campus that reflects our commitment to an environment where everyone feels welcomed, valued, and included, onstage and off. This sense of belonging empowers individuals and unites communities by creating mutual respect and appreciation.
The Bushnell's supporting cast of more than 600 volunteers contribute 35,000 hours of service at The Bushnell each year. Bushnell volunteers lead tours of the historic Hall, act as ushers and perform other important duties during performances. Behind the scenes, they work as office assistants, performing tasks necessary to The Bushnell's continuing operation.
