Association of Sound Designers
The Association of Sound Designers represents the interests of sound designers and others working and studying in the UK theatre sound industry. Our function is to connect the widely dispersed sound design community, to educate and promote high standards. The Association of Sound Designers advocates for a diverse and inclusive theatre sound community, in which all members, regardless of race, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical ability, mental health, nationality, language, religion, belief, or socioeconomic background can work with dignity and in safety. All ASD members are expected to take responsibility for creating inclusive, productive working environments that are positive and supportive. As theatre sound professionals, we also have a responsibility to raise concerns we may have about unsafe working experiences and to stand up for others in vulnerable positions, where appropriate and possible. The ASD is committed to support and empower its members to work freely and creatively,in environments in which everyone can be themselves, respected, valued, and feel that their voices are heard.
