The state of global unrest in reaction to the death of George Floyd — and many others at the hands of police brutality — is symptomatic of the deep inequalities that have rightfully sparked anger and activism from Minneapolis to Margate.
OSE aims to make the arts a more open, non-exclusive and accessible sector. We are committed to anti-racism, and stand in solidarity with our Black colleagues, learners, alumni, and all those fighting racial injustice.
We understand that we still have a long way to go — and that via our programmes and partnerships, we must do more to dismantle structural systemic barriers and ensure Black voices are better amplified through our platform.
Join us for an open discussion on Wednesday 22 July at 6pm as we begin to unpack how we — as individuals, organisations, and a sector — can transform our strategic aims into tangible actions.
We welcome the contribution and involvement of everyone in Margate, Kent, and more widely in the UK. If you would like to take part in this discussion, please book.
