BIPOC & AAPI STATEMENT
Artaria stands in support of all Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color, Asian American, and Pacific Island people. All persons should enjoy equality, dignity, peace, and every opportunity and privilege to follow their dreams, regardless of skin color, origin, economic status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or religion.
We acknowledge that we have underperformed and undertaught the chamber music of Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and Asian American and Pacific Islanders. We are now committed to inclusivity and giving voice to important and valuable compositions of ALL past and living composers.
Artaria is dedicated to supporting and celebrating our students, audiences, and composers of all diversity, and to contributing our efforts toward social justice...to confront our role in perpetuating injustice, to facilitate the healing of past wounds, and to open opportunities for all to thrive today and always.
