OPEN SPACE: Putting Anti-Racism into Practice
15th July 2021 at 11:00 am - 1:30 pm| donation
Calling question: What role can the arts, arts organisations and arts workers play in eradicating racism and building more inclusive communities?
Context for the question & who the event is for:
We need to build a more inclusive idea of what Britain needs to become if it is to play a real part in eradicating racism of all forms. The arts have a key role to play in this struggle. A Manifest to Create a Safe Space Free of Racism for the Black Artist
This event will explore how the participatory theatre sector can support Anti-Racism through our arts practice and how we can assist with diversifying our sector and workforce.
Join guest speakers to hear about how their work is addressing inequality, diversity and access to the arts. These presentations will be aimed to provoke your own thinking around your arts practice.
Speakers to be announced soon…
