DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION, AND ACCESSIBILITY

At Kirkland Performance Center, we are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible community where everyone feels welcome and valued. Our dedication to these principles is embedded in our mission to provide a gathering space to build a community connected by culture and provide enriching and accessible performing arts experiences and events for all.

Diversity: We celebrate the richness of human differences, recognizing that a diverse range of perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences enhances the vibrancy of our community. We strive to create a space where individuals of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, and socio-economic statuses feel seen, heard, and represented.

Equity: We are dedicated to dismantling barriers that impede equal access to the arts and cultural experiences. Our commitment to equity means addressing systemic disparities and working towards fair and just opportunities for all members of our community, both on and off the stage.

Inclusion: We actively cultivate an inclusive environment that embraces collaboration, open dialogue, and mutual respect. By fostering a sense of belonging, we aim to create an atmosphere where everyone can participate, contribute, and thrive in the shared joy of artistic expression.

Accessibility: Kirkland Performance Center is committed to making our venue and programming accessible to all individuals. We continuously strive to remove physical, communication, and attitudinal barriers to ensure that everyone can engage with the arts comfortably and enjoyably.

We recognize that this commitment requires ongoing reflection, learning, and action. As an organization, we pledge to listen, adapt, and evolve in response to the diverse needs and aspirations of our community. Together, we aim to build a more inclusive and accessible cultural landscape for the benefit of all.
