Arts Foundation of the Mid-Columbia

Statement on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

We value the diversity of cultures within our communities. The Arts Foundation of the Mid-Columbia (AFMC) recognizes the individual differences along the aspects of race, ethnicity, age, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, physical disabilities, nationality language, religious beliefs, and socioeconomic background. AFMC is committed to partnering with organizations, businesses, and individuals that share our dedication to creating and maintaining an inclusive environment with equitable treatment for all. Equity, diversity, and inclusion is essential to the creation of high-quality art.

During this time of social unrest, we wish to support the artistic vibrancy and cultural diversity of our community in the Mid-Columbia region. We encourage and invite people to engage in visual dialogue to express their experience. Normally we would present the “Artist of the Week”, however, we have decided to pause for a couple of weeks. Instead we will listen and learn from the community’s collective voice.
