anti-racism

The d'n anti-racism working group is in the process of collating resources and organising several events to take place over the course of 2021, aiming to interrogate traditional, Eurocentric dramaturgies and modes of storytelling.

 

As an organisation, we wish to support dramaturgs to be rigorous in their anti-racist artistic practice.

 

Please note that, since this website is currently under development, the resources below are conversation-starters. This page will be expanded in due course.

Open letter from playwrights of colour concerning the prioritisation of Eurocentric dramaturgies and modes of dramaturgical practice as 'best' and most 'universal'.

The letter, along with a response from the d'n Board's, is here.

Website containing 'BIPOC Demands for White American Theater', a 7-month accountability report in response to these demands, and the 'Principles for Building Anti-Racist Theater Systems'

GoogleDoc containing articles, reports, websites, podcasts, books and other media relating to anti-racism and anti-racist practice in the arts.

This work is done entirely on a voluntary basis.
