CITY OF SANCTUARY19th October 2023
The Montgomery Theatre and Arts Centre has made the pledge!
We support the ‘City of Sanctuary’ vision that the UK will be a welcoming place of safety for all and proud to offer sanctuary to people fleeing violence and persecution.
We endorse the City of Sanctuary Charter, and agree to act in accordance with City of Sanctuary values and apply the network principles within our work (as far as our specific context enables us to).
We recognise the contribution of people seeking sanctuary. Sanctuary seekers are welcomed, included and supported within our context. We expect our branches or local groups (if any) to support their local City of Sanctuary group if one exists, and will facilitate contact between them and their local City of Sanctuary group.
Here at The Monty, these aren’t just words, it is a vision we live by. From our work with Stand and Be Counted Theatre Company to #MiniMigMat being a safe space for Sanctuary Seekers drives our programming, the work we do and it’s a massive part of our decision making during our very imporyant redevelopment.
We so pleased to be a part of this movement and we actively encourage all arts organisations to make the pledge and work towards a more inclusive theatre industry for everyone.
