Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Access (EDIA)
Guided by the belief that the performing arts are both for and by all peoples, the Capitol Center is committed to creating a community where both the art presented on the CCA stages, and the audiences for that art represent the rich diversity of the communities we serve. We hereby strengthen our commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility. We acknowledge our responsibility as a prominent arts institution for creating an environment of active anti-racism and dismantling systemic barriers.
- We enter into this work by first recognizing the rich indigenous culture and heritage that existed long before our arrival.
- We acknowledge the indigenous peoples land on which our facilities stand and commit to policies and practices of cultural equity for today and future generations.
- We commit to pursuing inclusive policies and practices to address inequality and promote social justice as we fulfill our mission, and to creating a safe and welcoming atmosphere for artists and audiences.
- We will act on the belief that the Capitol Center for the Arts is stronger with a board and staff that fully represent the rich diversity of New Hampshire’s residents, including those who are new members of our communities.
- We commit to being a strong neighbor and ally by contributing to important efforts already happening in our community.
- We pledge to become a more active participant in and supporter of existing organizations representing all members of our community.
