The Chimaera Project’s Cultural Equity and Inclusion Statement

The Chimaera Project believes the value we gain from cultural diversity, equity and inclusion develops thought leaders, ideas, multiple vantage points and values.

Through our programs we have learned diversity includes (and is not limited to) socioeconomic, geographical, racial, people with disabilities, individuals of all ages and the LGBTQIA+ communities.

We have evidenced firsthand the impact our participant’s film projects have on public audiences, artist communities and the greater community. Our film and media arts projects are shared on multiple platforms, both locally and globally, and with new technology growing exponentially, there are limitless participation and outreach possibilities. We realize we may need to refine this statement as new lessons are learned and keep this at the forefront of each action taken as our organization’s work evolves.
