Build a collaboration

View resources

An excellent way to diversify your program is to build a collaboration with artists and writers of colour or an organisation working with artists of colour. Collaborations encourage equitable power relationships, shared compensation and shared creative control, which are critical in avoiding issues such as stereotyping and cultural appropriation.

How do I do it?

If you are interested in developing a project that draws on the creative expressions of another culture, seek out partnerships with artists from that culture before you begin. Leverage your networks and widen your talent pool for leads.
