Our commitment to anti-racist action
We’re making a commitment to anti-racist action. We want to do more. We hope you do too. Read about the actions we are promising to put into place in our blog, “Tragedy cannot be the catalyst for change.” The blog also includes a list of resources and actions that you can take to help in the fight against racism.
This note was written by a young black student from Stretford during one of our equalities workshops. Over the past 4 years we’ve delivered 240 equalities workshops to students across Greater Manchester. Not a single session has passed without a black student sharing a personal experience of witnessing or being the target of racism.
Stay Safe, Stay Home
We’ve been a little quiet recently as we try to rescue, reshape and reimagine our next 18 months of activity to ensure we can provide exciting, accessible and useful creative opportunities for local people and artists.
We’re a small team of 2, but the Art with Heart family extends way beyond us. To give you an idea over the past 2 years we’ve employed over 60 freelance creatives and engaged over 10,000 people through performances, projects and workshops!
We’re committed to doing all we can to provide opportunities for communities and creatives. We just need a little time to get our ducks in a row. Until then stay safe and look after one another.
