Promethean Theatre Ensemble is committed to creating a safe and inclusive space for artists of every race, background, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity. In partnership with our gracious supporter, The Arts Work Fund – Arts for Illinois Emergency Relief Fund housed at The Chicago Community Trust, we adopt The Trust’s Statement of Diversity and Inclusion and the mission to value and embrace diversity. We strive to amplify diverse voices and talents by showcasing the work of artists and engaging with audiences from all intersections of our community.

Statement of Diversity and Inclusion

The mission of The Chicago Community Trust is to improve the lives of the people in metropolitan Chicago. We believe that the diversity of our community is a fundamental strength of our region. Our mission is best fulfilled when we embrace diversity as a value and a practice.

We maintain that achieving diversity requires an enduring commitment to inclusion that must find full expression in our organizational culture, values, norms and behaviors.

Throughout our work, we will support diversity in all of its forms, encompassing but not limited to age, disability status, economic circumstance, ethnicity, gender, race, religion and sexual orientation.
