A 501(c)(3) non-profit focusing on Integrated Arts education and Live performance
As an organization centered around filtering art through experience, we must honor and witness the real pain and trauma in our midst. The killings of Black and Asian Americans highlight the need for systemic change in our country to address racial injustice. Events continue to unfold that unveil the discrimination, misogyny, racism, and violence that have long existed in our culture. Racism in any form is unacceptable. Bushwick Northwest stands committed to being an anti-racist alliance that features a diversity of voices and confronts institutional racism.
As a white-founded and white-led organization, we acknowledge that we have more work to do. Bushwick Northwest pledges to pursue racial, social, and economic equity at all levels of our organization. This includes representation on stages and in classrooms, in our administrative and governing bodies, partnerships and outreach, and as part of our everyday practices. We recognize that we must dismantle our own historical and structural barriers and biases in order to grow into a more equitable collective and truly fulfill our mission to deliver literature, music, and songwriting to the Seattle community while building the next generation of musicians and readers.
