The West Midlands Arts sector has launched the #MoreThanAMoment pledge for radical, bold and immediate action, to dismantle systems that have for too long kept Black artists and creatives from achieving their potential in the arts and creative industries.
I’m very grateful to those who have done the work on this and are creating guidance for us all to ensure we do better.
As a creative professional who got into this to help to raise the voices of less advantaged groups through media, More Than A Moment is really welcome – and a real challenge for me to consider my practice. How am I representing Black people through my work and how am I creating space for them to own their narrative? Plenty more listening and learning for me to do on this journey of allyship.
