Responding to the Black Lives Matter movement during 2020, arts and cultural organisations in Oxford came together to explore how they could work collaboratively to dismantle systemic racism in the sector and work to achieve radical change for those who experience racism due to the colour of their skin.
Following the formation of a number of cross-organisational working groups looking at specific areas during Autumn 2020, a Steering Group was formed with delegated responsibility to draft a Manifesto and Action Plan for review by arts organisations in Oxford. This Manifesto is in the process of being adopted by the arts and cultural sector in Oxford and will be launched to coincide with the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on 21 March 2021.
Engagement with arts organisations across Oxfordshire is at an early stage and it is hoped that, following consultation, peers across the county will also sign up to the values of the Manifesto.
