We stand to denounce racism in all its forms

We support the Black Lives Matter movement and stand in solidarity against all racism, oppression and inequality.

Alongside cultural organisations in the North East, we have signed a declaration to denounce racism in all it’s forms – https://baltic.art/whats-on/we-stand-to-denounce-racism-in-all-its-forms – and commit to upholding these values and be active in working towards positive structural change.

As the library develops organisationally, we will establish our own a set of long-term commitments; to support artists of colour and under-supported women in the North East; and ensure that our research and activities reflect who is making art in our region right now and historically.
