Is casting keeping up with the needs of inclusive storytelling? If not, then who’s accountable for making that change? With a demand for greater inclusion in our sector, the casting of our screen stories has never been more important. But are our casting processes keeping up with that demand for change, or is the industry still on the back foot? In 'Who Gets to Play Who? Casting with Integrity', we take an honest look into ways casting must evolve and who’s accountable for making those changes. We'll also explore which voices need to be informing and making casting decisions in order to create safer and better opportunities for historically under-represented actors.

Screen Producers Australia respectfully acknowledges the people of the Yugambeh language region, the traditional owners of the lands on which we met. We thank the traditional custodians for welcoming us all onto their lands.
We acknowledge and pay respects to them and all their descendants both past and present. We also acknowledge the many Aboriginal people from other regions as well as Torres Strait and South Sea Islander people who now live in the local area and have made an important contribution to the community.
