News (National): Black Artists & Artsworkers Survey – Black Pledge

The Black Pledge is an initiative to dismantle anti-Black racism in live performance in Canada. Check out our website and follow us on instagram and like our facebook page.
 
It’s been 3 years since the Black Pledge launched and we’ve been moving steadily.
  • Five organizations have signed the pledge: 2b theatre, Neworld Theatre, Nightwood Theatre, Shakespeare in the Ruff and The Stratford Festival. Two more are in the process are creating their plans: Buddies in Bad Times and Theatre Aquarius
  • We also have strategic partnerships with the Toronto Alliance of the Performing Arts, Professional Association of Canadian Theatres and Choral Canada
  • We are also embarking on facilitating a series of anti-Black racism workshops with the support of the Canada Council of the Arts and a wide ranging marketing initiative called the Year of Black Performance to mark the UN’s final year of the Decade of People of African Descent. More to come on these initiatives soon
  • A small group of us have been working with Cultural Pluralism in the Arts Movement Ontario and learning through their “train the trainer” sessions
We are reaching out to you, Black artists and artsworkers who work in live performance. We want your thoughts and input and we want to stay connected. Fill out this form/survey below and feel free to forward it to other Black artists and artsworkers.
