Curious Minds and Anti-Racism

The very first words of our mission statement are ‘Our vision is for an equal society...’. Tackling unequal access to, and through, arts and culture are right at the heart of why Curious Minds exists. We recognise that our work is far from done, and acknowledge we have a long way to go with specific regards to ethnic and racial diversity.
