For the last several months, the Accountability Collective has been hard at work building the necessary infrastructure to support the longevity and effectiveness of our work.
Beginning January 2021, we will begin taking meetings with members of the Portland area theatre community.
We look forward to working together to build a safer, stronger theatre community.
who we are
The Accountability Collective’s mission is to provide Portland area theatre participants with resources for equitable and safe work environments. There is indisputable evidence that white supremacy and oppression plagues the foundation of theatres and arts organizations in Portland. From the funding organizations to our boards, to the productions portrayed on stage, racist, misogynistic, homophobic, and oppressive behavior is buried and swept under the rug. In order for the arts community to truly change and reform our practices, these events of oppression should be recorded without risk of retaliation or reprimand.
This process is designed to help those who feel inclined to report their experiences of oppression and microaggressions and for organizations to become aware of the toxic behavior that has occurred and are occurring within and outside of their domain. Many artists do not feel comfortable reporting to these organizations of their own discrepancies. This system will provide a larger independent body to help govern the events that are happening in our theatres
You are important.
You are valued.
You deserve a moment of breath.
Join Kristen Mun for a morning meditation every Monday at 9 am on Zoom.
Self-advocacy starts with self-love. When we take care of ourselves, we can better show up for others. Keep up the fight against white supremacy by taking time for yourself and practicing radical self care.
This is a free event open to all, but donations are always accepted.
