Region 2 Arts Council is committed to actively listening, learning, and changing in order to make progress toward greater equity. Please read the following statement as a work-in-progress, and as our commitment:

Artistic expression acts as the eyes, ears, and voice of humanity, building empathy and calling us to see, hear, and respond as one human being to another. Being an organization that supports and celebrates the diversity of human expression, we acknowledge and must be aware of the racial, cultural, social, and economic forces that have defined us and our organization. Every day in any decision we make, Region 2 Arts Council is called to listen, learn, and respond to all those around us, regardless of race, gender, age, sexuality, mental or physical capability, social status or economic circumstance
