#PULLUPORSHUTUP A Campaign for Diversity
LIFT is participating in #PullUpOrShutUp, a campaign in UK theatre calling on organisations to share details and statistics of how race and ethnicity is represented across who works for and is hired by the organisation. Below a we have shared details of our workforce and commissions according to race and ethnicity. We have begun initial work and reflection as a company, encouraged by Black Lives Matter to make more clear our strategy for anti-racism. We plan to consult with and canvas among our communities of stakeholders, artists and participants both in the UK and abroad as we redefine this strategy. We are working towards an anti-racism action plan and will continue to publish information regarding the actions we are taking as they develop.
