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.

Despite the many discussions, conferences, symposia, organizations, demonstrations and social engagements surrounding the topic, many are not precisely concerned with gender issues. What is the sector really interested in? Why do the discussions about gender only involve men and women? Are these social debates? Have we been so caught up in the fictional reality that our bright human intellect created, that we can no longer identify when we slipped off track?

Chay Yew, artistic director of Victory Gardens Theater, says: “We can’t be twenty-first-century Americans if we don’t know African American, Latino, Asian, Native, and white histories and narratives. They make up our complicated collective history as citizens, as a nation, and we need to own them.”

"Particularly as a white person, writing “raceless” characters in works of realism can be just as harmful as writing stereotypical characters of color…there is no such thing as a “raceless” person."

The concept of Equality is compelling because it is easier to understand, less messy, and less risky than Equity. Equality requires less effort to grasp. True Equity takes time, energy, and thoughtfulness. It requires us to reexamine everything we know and change systems and practices that we have been using for hundreds of years. This is often painful and uncomfortable. So we openly flirt with Equity while still staying firmly in the arms of Equality.

About us. By us. For us. Near us. It has been almost a century since the great W.E.B. Du Bois–one of the co-founders of the NAACP–offered this stirring call for what, today, we would call “cultural equity.” To say much has happened in those ninety years would be to oversimplify. Significant progress has been made. And yet for many, and on many levels, it is not enough.
