About Culture Against Racism:
Culture Against Racism is a collaborative network of individuals and organisations committed to creating an anti-racist culture, and creative sector, in the North East of England.
In June 2020, Culture Against Racism emerged when the cultural sector of the North East of England initiated a statement denouncing racism and seeking to bring about a collective change in thinking and action as organisations and individuals. Since this date, over 100 organisations and individuals added their signature to the statement
and are currently in the process of making pledges outlining the steps and actions that they will put in place to bring about real change.
Culture Against Racism has four purposes:
• To centre the experiences of people who experience racism in the cultural and creative sectors in the North East of England
• To create and hold space for members (signatories) to listen, learn, share and develop actions to stop institutional racism
• To support members (signatories) to make a public commitment to taking anti-racist action and to hold each other accountable for these commitments.
• To collaborate in developing resources and examples of best practice to support members to take anti-racist action.
In support of achieving the above aims, Culture Against Racism has held a Town Hall meeting and a series of anti-racist workshops for individuals and cultural organisations and advocating for change with Policy Makers, including Arts Council England. Future activities will include two further Town Halls (including one specifically for individuals who have experienced racism), socials, and pledge workshops.
The Project Coordinator will play a vital role in the day-to-day operations of Culture Against Racism, providing much-needed capacity to enable the Operations Group to focus upon advancing the longer-term strategy and structure of Culture Against Racism.
