Our Commitment to Equality
Racism has no place in our society or within the arts. Britten Pears Arts is proud to stand in solidarity with the black community and everyone fighting racism across the world.
Following discussions with artists we work with, from groups underrepresented by Britten Pears Arts, we are making these commitments to equal access, equal opportunity, and to holding ourselves accountable.
Read our full statement from Britten Pears Arts Chief Executive, Roger Wright, and co-chairs of the Board of Trustees, Simon Robey and Vernon Ellis.
The Britten-Pears Foundation and the charity Snape Maltings have merged to create a new organisation called Britten Pears Arts.
