Inclusion

Nous sommes convaincus que c’est dans la nature des arts de brandir un miroir critique de la société, et de briser les barrières  entre ses différents groupes. Cependant, notre secteur reflète-t-il fidèlement les communautés dans lesquelles nous vivons ?

Ce débat met en avant la nécessité d’ouvrir les arts à toute la société – à toutes les classes, les ethnicités, les religions, les capacités physiques, et les milieux qui la constituent.

Aujourd’hui, avec l’afflux de réfugiés et la diversité croissante au sein des pays de l’UE, nous nous efforçons plus que jamais d’amener ce sujet au cœur du débat public et politique.

Thanks to the support of the Arts Council, in 2016 #WakingTheFeminists commissioned groundbreaking research into the gender balance in ten of the top publicly funded theatre organisations over a ten-year period from 2006-2015, as a way to create a baseline from which these changes can be measured. This report is the piece of the puzzle that was missing, the research that never existed. And you will find that it is stark.

We must avoid trafficking in clichés and “received knowledge” about Muslims—or any other marginalized group—because to do so instrumentalizes stereotype. The question is not who gets to speak for certain groups (since that critique has long been used to silence disempowered communities), but rather to propose strategy to improve opportunity equity and awareness.

On 20-23 April I attended the IETM Plenary Meeting in Bucharest, Romania, a network of over 500 performing arts organisations and individual members working in the contemporary performing arts worldwide. The international network for contemporary performing arts hosts a meeting in a different city in Europe twice a year, advocating for the value of performing arts, commissioning publications and research, and facilitating communication and the distribution of information.

What was diverse ten years ago is privileged today, and today’s diversity models will become obsolete in the coming years. Historically disenfranchised groups are just now finding their voices after decades, even centuries, of silence.

Taiwanese’s identification has been inherently problematic and lacerated, and raises many questions that have become inseparable from the main concerns of Taiwanese theater artists: Who are we?
