Mikron Theatre Company Anti Racism Statement April 2021
As a company, we have been reflecting on racism. We recognise our role in society and our ability to influence and actively change. To simply say ‘we’re not racist’ is not enough, we must be actively anti-racist. We want to be responsive and supportive allies. We would therefore like to make the following pledges, and action them as far as we can.
We confirm our commitment to equality and our desire to make a stand against racism and prejudice and contribute to a richer, more diverse and inclusive society.
We acknowledge that insularity has unintentionally become customary because it’s easy and safe. We are committed to changing this attitude in Mikron and guarding against such practice. As a small company we can make excuses as to why there isn’t greater diversity within our team and why we don’t reach a wider audience, but our size will also help us to be responsive and to implement change without layers of bureaucracy.
Our strap line is ‘theatre anywhere for everyone’ and we want to be better at this.
So far, we have:
We want to remove barriers and show greater diversity in all aspects of our work.
To achieve that we will:
We want to reflect and embolden the society that we live in and serve, we are open to change and challenge.
We invite everyone to hold us to our pledges and to our commitment to change.
