To create a clear framework for action, Inc Arts has collected the recommendations of the sector’s ethnically diverse advocacy groups, artists and leaders. We’ve combined this into a series of measurable actions for the sector to sign up to.
Inc Arts Unlock gives arts organisations practical steps to take anti-racist action. Unlock has in it over 100 actions that will help creative work places become more inclusive.
The process is entirely confidential: at the heart of the Unlock toolkit is a commitment to give everyone equal treatment through trust, confidence, dignity and respect.
Unlock is for: Dance companies, Independent Producers, Museums, Regional theatres, Collections and archives, Visual Arts spaces, Receiving Houses, Festivals and Outdoor arts, Crafts organisations - and more...
In our anti-racism conference we invited arts organisations to complete a set of questions that reflected some of the recommendations that will help build anti-racist accountability within the creative and cultural sector.
Unlock has also been developed from the advocacy of organisations including but not limited to:
Eclipse Theatre, Migrants in Culture, Migrants in Theatre, Freelancers Make Theatre Work, All-Black Coalition, More than a Moment, Coventry Belgrade Theatre, Black Cultural Leaders, Anti-Racism Touring Rider, Museum Detox, and the ethnically diverse creative sector workforce who have shared their ideas and recommendations over several weeks with Inc Arts.
You can see these recommendations and more on our advocacy page.
Thank you for working with us to make diverse and inclusive change. This is a vital part in your creative practice.
