Diversity, Equity, Inclusion,
and Accessibility Statement

Rockdale Arts District is committed to fostering a culture that values and celebrates diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. We believe that art has the power to transform individuals and communities, and it is our responsibility to ensure that everyone has equal opportunities to engage with and contribute to the artistic experience.


Diversity: We embrace diversity in all its forms, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, physical and mental abilities, and religious beliefs. We strive to create an inclusive and welcoming environment that reflects the rich tapestry of our society.


Equity: We are dedicated to promoting equity within the art world. We recognize that historical and systemic barriers have disproportionately affected certain communities, and we are committed to dismantling those barriers. We strive to provide equal access to resources, opportunities, and platforms for artists, ensuring that everyone has a fair chance to succeed.


Inclusion: We believe in the power of inclusivity and actively work to create spaces where diverse voices and perspectives are valued, heard, and represented. We aim to cultivate an inclusive community that fosters collaboration, creativity, and mutual respect. We actively seek out partnerships and collaborations with individuals and organizations that share our commitment to inclusion.


Accessibility: We are committed to making art accessible to all individuals, regardless of their physical, sensory, or cognitive abilities. We strive to remove physical, social, and technological barriers that may hinder participation in our programs, exhibitions, and events. We continuously evaluate and improve our practices to ensure that our spaces, communications, and activities are accessible and inclusive to everyone.

Through our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, we aim to create transformative art experiences that challenge and inspire, and to foster a more equitable and inclusive society. We acknowledge that this work is ongoing and requires continuous learning, reflection, and action. We invite our community, artists, partners, and supporters to join us on this journey as we strive for a more inclusive and accessible art world.
