Anti-Racism Statement

The Serpentine supports the fight against racial injustice taking place around the world. We are committed to building an anti-racist organisation in the service of artists and audiences.

We thank everyone in our community who has spoken with us and challenged us to do more. For all that we have accomplished already, we have not accomplished enough. We recognise that it is essential not only to take action quickly, but also to ensure that action is continuous and sustained.

Anti-racism will be a core component of our decision-making going forward. This starts with the formation of a task force to implement transformative change at the Serpentine. We will also introduce an apprenticeship and career advancement programme for underrepresented groups as the first step in an expanded recruitment effort, and provide enhanced unconscious bias and anti-racism training across the organisation. We are committed to developing and delivering an anti-racism plan to create an inclusive and equitable space for all.

We will be updating specific actions regularly on our website as our anti-racism plan develops.
