DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION

In our programs, we strive to bring people together for a communal experience. Each presenter and visitor bring their own unique background to that experience and the experience is fullest when the backgrounds are the most diverse and unique.  We believe we will create the best possible experience when we have the most diversity of thought, background, and experience represented through and through.

Therefore, we commit to:

 

  • ·Welcoming diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion throughout the organization and within our audience and the community at large

  • Pursuing programs of education and other activities that encourage inclusion and engage and give back to all people of the local community and providing opportunities for our presenters and teachers to learn practices for reaching guests of all abilities, whenever possible

  • Being a resource for learning and accountability to the local community, and beyond

  • Prioritizing the creation of an institutional equity and anti-racism statement and resources on our website, and using our social media platforms to actively engage in anti-racist and LGBTQIA+ communications

OPEN Tuesdays and every other Saturday and Sunday from 1-5 PM
