The Anti-Racism Touring Rider has been created in Spring 2021 to establish the baseline of expectations between companies, venues and artists on a touring production.
Organisations and freelancers across the country fed into the consultation process for the rider and accompanying checklist, offering a series of actions for anti-racist practice and giving a framework for discussion and support before and during a tour. This toolkit was created is for everyone committed to change in the arts sector, irrespective of scale or remit.
Graeae have adopted the Anti Racism Rider as an important statement of intent and will work with colleagues from across the industry to implement this. As a working company, we have made a commitment over the next two years to meet the baseline actions of the rider.
