Project X Symposium Report Published

FST was delighted to support Project X’s Let’s Move to More Visibility Symposium, held at Tramway, Glasgow on Friday 22 September 2017.

This one-day symposium explored how dance and the performing arts sector in Scotland could develop to have a greater representation and support of artists and practitioners who identify as People of Colour (POC) and/or Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic (BAME).

Attendees to the Symposium discussed lots of actions for change and together came up with 3 actions we could all do within our own practice and in organisations/institutions we work in or work with. These practical steps are:

  1. Know your power as a cultural consumer
  2. Find or make a place for yourself at the table – make sure you are represented at all levels
  3. See where representation is missing, and speak up for this even when it doesn’t affect you directly

The team behind the event have now created a report which captures the day as well as including conclusions, provocations and actions for change. FST members can download a copy of the report in the Research & Resources section of our website.
