SVCT Inclusion Statement
We believe in the transformational power of theatre. We believe that the arts have the power to inspire social change. In pursuing this vision, we seek to manage our programs and organizational culture in a manner that embraces equity, diversity and inclusion. We are an organization that values and celebrates everyone’s life experiences, their voices and their histories. Celebrating unique perspectives and contributions, South Valley Civic Theatre expects that all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual identity, culture, age, gender expression, background, ability, economic status, education, credentials and experience have the opportunity to be engaged in our programming.
We resolve to create a space where all people feel complete, heard, respected, understood, valued and connected. We strive to create an environment that feels like home to our participants and our audience. We believe that creating a genuinely inclusive environment and ensuring that diverse voices are present and active in all aspects of our programming enhances our organization’s effectiveness. We aim to continuously push our thinking, challenge long-held beliefs and assumptions, and leverage our diversity to explore new, uncharted areas with our productions.
