Two artists are working on a colorful mural. The mural features a large portrait of a woman surrounded by vibrant patterns, flowers, butterflies, penguins, and other whimsical elements.

Diversity, Equity, inclusion, and Accessibility at Perkins:

To promote a full and creative life for all members of our communities, Perkins Center for the Arts commits to championing policies and practices of cultural equity that empower a just, inclusive and equitable society. Perkins Center for the Arts embodies the values, policies, and practices that ensure that all people—including but not limited to those who have been historically underrepresented based on race/ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion—are represented in the development of arts policy; the support of artists; the nurturing of accessible, thriving venues for expression; and the fair distribution of programmatic, financial, and informational resources.

Honoring Original Indigenous Inhabitants:

Perkins Center for the Arts sits on the native land of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Native American Tribe. We acknowledge that the land of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape upon which we sit today, is historic land from which many were forced to leave. This land whose headquarters are in Bridgeton, NJ, encompasses much of southern New Jersey including Moorestown and Collingswood, and was stolen from these communities. While the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape are still very much present in the region we wish to acknowledge the brutality of their history, and offer Perkins Center for the Arts as a partner and advocate to help further educate those who dwell here today, elevate the contributions of the Nanticoke Lenni Lenape Tribal Nation, and honor their history, their present, and their future.
