In the fight against systemic racism and inequality we know we need to do more.
From this point we commit to being more ambitious, ensuring that we create greater impact through our work.
We are at the beginning, but our commitment over the coming months will embrace the following: recruitment, programming and commissioning, leadership and governance, as well as how we can influence the wider sector and advocate for change. We will be actively seeking to commission conversation and input to help us shape these plans.
It will take time but we are making this commitment now and publicly.
We will continue to champion, share and celebrate work from the incredible Black spoken word artists and partners that we work with but our aim is to go much further and to do whatever we can to forge real and lasting change.
This is only the beginning…
