The importance of creating inclusive spaces

Posted on Feb 21, 2019

Following a hate-fuelled disruption by trans-exclusionary radical feminists (TERFs) at a recent Transmissions event held here during London Fashion Week, Artsadmin would like to make it clear that we do not tolerate transphobic abuse of any kind and stand with the trans community. As an organisation committed to supporting artists to create and present risk-taking work, we’re keen to build on existing partnerships as well as start new collaborations with groups, such as Transmissions, to make Toynbee Studios a safe space for artists and audiences to engage with culture without interruption or fear of recrimination.

As part of our opposition to all forms of discrimination, we are now working on an inclusion and safe space policy and set of procedures to ensure that all marginalised groups and individual artists feel at home in our theatre, rehearsal spaces and Arts Bar and Café at Toynbee Studios.
