“As independent creative producers I feel it is very important to support Bristol Zero Tolerance through our work and make it a core component of the way we interact and support creatives and communities to develop their ideas and projects. Independent producers should be advocates of safe spaces and safe environments for ideas to develop and produce events and activities where everyone feels welcomed.
My pledge to support Bristol Zero Tolerance is to only work with projects accessible and welcoming to all, to commit to eliminating discrimination and encouraging diversity amongst my team, volunteers, artists and communities I work with. All artists engaged by my projects will be required to promote equality of opportunities as part of their terms of engagement.
I have been trained up by the Good Night Out campaign to create safe spaces for night time entertainment and have also encouraged a diverse group of co-workers and projects delivery. I have received equal opportunities training and have always been committed in encouraging diversity and making people I work with feel welcomed and empowered to flourish!
My practice acknowledges and promotes the differences between individuals and values a diverse contribution of skills, abilities and experience. To that end the purpose of my work is to provide equality and fairness for projects I am involved with, and not to discriminate on grounds of gender, marital status, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, religion or age.”
