Black lives matter. To be silent is to be complicit. We must all actively work to dismantle racist structures in our work and personal lives.  Anti-racist work is vital in all aspects of life.


(updated 26/02/24)

To help us understand our complicity in racist structures and how to dismantle them we have used some amazing resources. A small selection of them are below, we change and update this list over time. 

INC Arts Anti Racism Toolkit

We've found this invaluable in suggesting practical steps we can take in our recruitment, leadership, care etc. practices. There are tick boxes where you can select which things you want to commit to and then give yourself a timeframe so very easy to create an action plan. Some of the suggestions are for larger touring companies or bigger institutions with staff but also some great suggestions for freelancers and micro-orgs.

PACT Anti Racism and the Arts Workbook

This is broken down into sections on power, accountability, connection and trust and each section has reading as well as journaling exercises and questions to help you directly question yourself. We found this really helpful as pre-reading for group discussions as it guides folk through some self reflection in their own time before coming to share with a group. It was created by UK based arts orgs so the reading felt really relevant to the current cultural context.

Migrants In Theatre: Creating a Thriving Environment for Theatre Artists in the UK

This PDF is explicitly about migrants (of all racial backgrounds and identities). It very clearly and beautifully articulates the value of migrants and has some very useful stats in it taken from a survey they did. There is also a lift of 15 action plans for companies.
