Camden People’s Theatre wishes to express its strong support for and solidarity with the worldwide protests against systemic racism in light of the appalling murder of George Floyd.
At CPT, we still have lots to learn about anti-racism. We will take this opportunity to listen, learn more, and ask ourselves: how can we better build anti-racism into everything we do? We will be referring to the resources being collated and made available by brilliant organisations including The Bush (via twitter) and individuals such as Suba Das and Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu. If you’ve not absorbed them already, we encourage you to take a look at these materials too.
We work year-round at CPT to help make the contemporary theatre sector more diverse, and more reflective of our borough, city and society. We’re honoured and proud to work with many extraordinary Black artists. With them, we strive to tell new and better stories and imagine a better world into being. We strongly support the #BlackLives Matter cause, at this and all times.
Kaya, Brian, James and all at CPT
