SAW Video Media Arts Centre stands in solidarity with Black and Indigenous communities.

SAW Video Media Arts Centre stands in solidarity with Black and Indigenous communities. 

We are committed to and make space for confronting and fighting systemic racism, police brutality and oppression in all of its forms. We call on members of the media arts community and beyond to amplify Black and Indigenous voices, to financially support initiatives in their local areas dedicated to racial justice, to engage with family and friends in difficult but necessary self-reflection and conversation about privilege and institutional racism.

We invite our media arts community to share this statement or to create their own, to ask themselves what more they can do and to commit themselves to the active listening and constant learning that racial justice demands.

In Solidarity,

SAW Video Board of Directors and staff
