LUMA CREATIONS and other invited guests.
LUMA Creations is a cultural and arts organisation that believes in the power of diversity and that we have to act and carry the anti-racist flame at all levels; who we are, who we work with and who we represent.
From our audiences and participants to our Board we strive to be many voices. Our team, of volunteers, staff and the board encompass the world. We are from Latin America, Africa, Middle East, Asia, Europe and the UK.
We have always been committed to an inclusive practise where we promote everyone’s voice, and we do this by our actions. We believe that we must stand against racism, not only in what we say and what we write on social media, but also in our strategy documents. We must act accordingly by supporting, advising and creating a platform for artists, arts workers, communities and partners, who are excluded because of their ethnic origins.
A year has passed since the murder of George Floyd and the creation of the Black Lives Matter movement, which saw an international outcry for justice. We at LUMA Creations fully back Black Lives Matter and the many movements across the world for racial justice, and from our first day, 10 years ago, we have always strived to give voices to those who are too often silenced by platitudes and institutional racism.
LUMA CREATIONS believes fervently in collaborations and partnerships and welcomes the chance to work with artists, companies, organisations, communities, localities and local government in a variety of settings. Anything is possible and everyone has potential.
We deliver a range of events, performances, projects, weekly workshops, training and consultancies.
