A message from the artistic director and a pledge from Deep Vision
We at Deep Vision believe that all Black lives matter and support the Black Lives Matter movement. We stand in solidarity with the Black community, and we pledge to go further than a public statement.
We vow to first move through a period of reflection. Where have we been blind? Where have we not spoken up and taken action? Where has our ignorance caused harm? Where have we proclaimed unity but demonstrated a lack of diversity? Where have we avoided the difficult conversations? Where could we have done more to fight systemic racism on a small and large scale?
Small actions have a rippling effect. This reflection must shift to action - continual steps towards justice, respect, equal opportunity and resources for all Black lives.
A continual theme in our work is that we, all of humanity, are connected on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Beneath it all, we must have compassion, love, and empathy for one another. We are created equally. We are all God's children. But this utopic, beautifully interconnected world is only a dream due to systemic racism, which is alive and ugly. Violence and anti-Black racism must stop, and we must all be a part of the process.
We publicly recommit to our mission – to cultivate dance experiences that engage, inspire, and connect various communities, and we are discussing next steps as an organization.
With love, all of us at Deep Vision
