Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement – Darlington Arts Center

For over 40 years, Darlington Arts Center has opened our doors to all with a passion for the arts.   Holding true to our mission of providing Every Art for Everyone, Darlington maintains an intentional focus on ensuring inclusion in our community regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical ability or socioeconomic backgrounds.  Led by a proud LGBTQ member, Darlington’s staff, teaching artist faculty, and board exhibit a vast cultural and racial diversity, creating a welcome environment where our students can see themselves reflected in those around them.   Darlington Arts Center remains committed to strengthening our understanding of equity and diversity by listening to our community’s needs, researching rich and diverse artistic programming, and providing education for our staff, faculty and board in a professional development setting.   The arts require individual thought and expression.  We celebrate your individuality and invite you to experience, to engage, to learn and to create in our artistic world.
