Anti-Racism Commitment

Updated July 2021  

The Yvonne Arnaud is committed to being an anti-racist organisation.  We recognise the critical role the arts play in our culture and national conversations and accept our responsibility to make positive change through our work, our practices, and our policies. We recognise racial inequality exists and that we must play an active role in addressing societal, systemic, and everyday racism both in our theatre and in our wider community. 

The theatre has a zero-tolerance approach to racism and condemns all racist and discriminatory behaviour. We are committed to challenging and dismantling structural racism within our practices, policies, procedures and our community. It is unacceptable that anyone in our theatre experiences racism or discrimination.  

Our anti-racism action plan details the actions we will take as an organisation to begin this work. The action plan is a live document, updated and revised as our learning progresses.
