As an arts and cultural anchor in our community, the Lehigh Valley Arts & Cultural Alliance is committed to supporting, advocating for, and expanding the principles of diversity, equity, accessibility, inclusion, and social justice throughout our community. Through our programs, support, advocacy, research, educational efforts, employee and leadership policies and practices for our staff, Board, and volunteers we seek to embody the principles of DEAI that reflect our hopes and aspirations for all of society.
Further, we recognize that in addition to being unequivocal in our stance against racism, and bias in all forms in our organization and in our community, we need to do more. We welcome the role the arts can play as a medium of observation, insight, education, articulation, and advocacy. As such, we seek to provide a platform and partnerships for focusing on challenging social issues through art and serving as a convener and community advocate in addressing these challenges.
