Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter

In response to the Black Lives Matter movement that originated in America and is resonating around the world, we want to assure our communities that The Atkinson is listening and learning.

The Atkinson is a member of the Museums Association, who released a joint statement for the heritage sector on 03.06.2020. Read it here.

The Atkinson is operated by Sefton Council. Cllr Ian Maher, Leader of Sefton Council said: “The Council has a proud history of supporting equality and diversity across our beautiful Borough and beyond and remains committed to providing and supporting an environment and communities where all our people are valued for who they are at all times.” Read more here.

The Atkinson’s management team are in conversation with our Sefton Young Producers on the Hope Streets project, who offered to discuss what actions they would like to see The Atkinson take to address systemic racism.

Please post the resources you have found useful in the comments below, so we can continue to listen, learn and develop.
