OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Moving Body Arts Ltd was launched in 2019 as a service and training provider for the entertainment industry in the UK.
We believe in safe spaces, creative spaces, diverse and inclusive spaces.
A Safe Space is where we listen, enquire, explore and offer empathy & compassion.
Inclusivity and Anti-Racism
We want to create a culture and environment in which everyone’s experience in our industry is equal, inclusive and equitable.
Raising Awareness & Allyship
We strongly believe that every company or practitioner in our industry must better understand, challenge and seek to eradicate systems and structures that have affirmed, perpetuated or supported inequalities and inequities.
Fostering Exchange of Knowledge & Growth
Through our training, mentorship and work with educational institutions we wish to forster learning & growth, exchange knowledge and further develop creative and educational skills.
As a professional company and community we recognise our responsibility not only to learn and grow, but also to contribute artistic work and education programmes that illuminate and challenge the many ways in which conscious and unconscious bias, racism and oppression operate, and proactively work towards their eradication.
The proposed eradication will extend throughout the company, with particular attention to our culture, values, processes of recruitment, appointment, mentoring, succession planning, and support of and engagement with people.
We will try our best to diversify our pool of freelance professionals with particular attention to ethnic minorities, asian and black representation.
We will identify necessary actions to make positive change towards creating an anti-racist, pro-equality industry, with a commitment to measuring progress and providing appropriate transparency.
We will pursue stated actions vigorously, led by the Co-Directors having oversight of and accountability for the progress made on identified improvements and actions based upon our shared values.
This statement of intent is a precursor to a policy and a plan of action which will be shared with our freelance practitioners with the recognition that in order to make lasting change these decisions should so far as is practical, be informed by the experience and voices of those who work with us.
These organisational commitments are of profound significance and we are committed to advocating and promoting change in our industry.
