Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging
We are proud to announce that CCAEF is currently engaged in the thoughtful development of our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) statement, alongside a meaningful and respectful land acknowledgment. Art has the power to reflect and shape society, and we are committed to using our platform to champion diversity, foster inclusivity, and drive positive change.
We have organized a special committee to develop our DEIB statement to demonstrate our dedicated to creating an environment where artists, audiences, and collaborators of all backgrounds feel valued and empowered. We recognize the importance of embracing differing perspectives and experiences to enrich our creative endeavors.
Simultaneously, we are undertaking the task of crafting a land acknowledgment that pays tribute to the Indigenous peoples who have historically stewarded the lands upon which we gather and create. This acknowledgment will serve as a reminder of our commitment to acknowledging historical injustices and fostering meaningful relationships with Indigenous communities.
