In the article, ‘On courageous leadership in the arts‘, on ArtsHub, Pilar Kasat explores and challenges the prevalence of white privilege surrounding leadership in the arts and how it needs to be acknowledged, and it needs to be dismantled.
“The truth is that change doesn’t just happen. To shift from entrenched white normativity and cultural dominance towards true representation of diversity in all its manifestations needs at least two things. First, the prevalence of white privilege surrounding leadership in the arts needs to be acknowledged, and secondly, it needs to be dismantled. This is the work of leaders.”
