Honouring the spirit of sharing resources peacefully and respectfully in this area of the world, as many Indigenous nations did for centuries, involves institutions like Toronto Dance Theatre undertaking ongoing systemic renewal by continuing to learn about and apply decolonization and anti-racism practices throughout the organization. Below is our Phase I Action Plan towards creating systemic change at Toronto Dance Theatre that includes extensive decolonization and anti-racism education and internal review, as well as a new step towards a redistribution of resources that were gained in a systemically racist arts sector.
