We at Operatunity Theatre firmly believe that black lives matter and that the impact of racism and white supremacy in the arts community must be acknowledged so that we can end them. We are taking this time to listen to the BIPOC community who are speaking to impact the way we carry out our mission of producing high-quality musical art through offering significant “operatunities” for emerging vocal artists.
Here are some of the organizations, resources, and tools we are learning from:
In order to make art that is meaningful in our world, we must become better at intentionally amplifying diverse voices and committing to inclusion. As we navigate these early years of growth as an organization, Operatunity Theatre, its administrative team, and its Board of Directors will be a proactive instrument of change in hiring and working with vocal artists of the BIPOC community. It is our promise to ensure that our personnel and programming reflect our organizational values of accessibility, diversity, and equity.
