At Cumberland Village Works, we are honoured to set the stage to amplify diverse voices and to share the gift of new experiences. Building supportive relationships between artists and audiences and providing inclusive and safer environments is our ‘Heart’ and you are the centrepoint of this work. It takes a village and we need our community to join in the creation of a collective vibe where we all feel valued and encouraged. It’s a living process and one that we all deserve to be a part of.
In order to do so, we ask you to join us in a commitment to:
Health – We prioritize the work of our creatives and their wellbeing. Performers, workers, and audiences deserve safer sharing spaces and we commit to providing that. Getting consent early and often ensures clarity for all parties!
Enact – We commit to enact policies, procedures, and strategies that maintain zero tolerance for harassment, discrimination, bullying and violence. This includes training, resources, action based remediation, and restorative justice.
Approachable & Accountable – We support open, honest, and candid discussion. Please listen actively, speak up when necessary, and be present for each other. If you see something, say something, and reach out!
Respect – We produce programming that values diversity, sustainability and respect for ourselves and others. Be respectful, be kind, show support, and share the love.
Together – We are better when we work together. We foster a collaborative environment, where everyone’s ideas and contributions are valued and encouraged. Be mindful, intentional, and centered in your approach to others.
