The Black Lives Matter movement has demonstrated the urgent need for us to take action in proving our commitment to ending racism in all its forms.
Since June 2020, when we published a statement acknowledging our failure to be an actively anti-racist organisation, we have worked with stakeholders, staff, trustees, partners and advisors to create this first-step anti-racism action plan for Chapter.
We understand that the work of being an anti-racist organisation is long-term and that it must be based on consistent and meaningful dialogue, relationships and action. As such, this is a dynamic document, and we commit to reviewing and updating our planned actions twice a year as we continue to work with individuals, partners, organisations and artists.
Established by artists in 1971 to celebrate experimentation and radical thought, we’ve been a catalyst for creativity and critical thinking ever since.
