ArtsFairfax Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility
DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION, AND ACCESSIBILITY STATEMENT
Diversity fuels creativity. Creativity fuels the arts.
ArtsFairfax embraces diversity in everything we do because diverse perspectives, diverse influences, and diverse audiences help our community thrive.
By including Fairfax County’s wonderful panoply of cultures, races, generations, and orientations in the arts, we enrich everyone’s lives.
The creation of our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility Statement is an outcome of our latest Strategic Plan.
The 2022-2026 Strategic Plan was developed during a global pandemic and the racial reckoning of our nation. As a result, we made bolder commitments to make the arts in Fairfax County and the surrounding areas more accessible, diverse, equitable, and inclusive, using the One Fairfax policy as a guide, along with similar resources.
The Strategic Plan is designed to create a sense of belonging for all who contribute to and experience arts and culture in Fairfax
