STATEMENT: WE STAND TO DENOUNCE RACISM IN ALL ITS FORMS

STATEMENT: WE STAND TO DENOUNCE RACISM IN ALL ITS FORMS

   
We stand to denounce racism in all its forms.
 
We, the undersigned from the cultural sector of the North East, declare that silence is not ok and silence is seen as complicity. Racism has no place in a just and humane society.
 
Whilst we cannot undo pain and neglect, we are calling on all of us in the arts, cultural, heritage sectors; professional and voluntary to work together to address racism and its deep roots. We must listen, have conversations and most importantly act, we know we need to do better. Everyone is part of the solution - artists, staff, board members, partners, promoters, audiences and communities.
 
We want to tackle this together in sharing better understanding and practices. We stand united to bring about change in our thinking and actions as a collective of organisations and individuals.
 
In the weeks and months to come we will collectively act to build on this statement with concrete steps and actions to demonstrate our commitment to bringing about real change. We ask you to stand with us.
