The Front is a cooperative gallery, founded on cooperative ideals. We believe that art and the collective nature of our gallery membership can effect social change. It is in this spirit that we make a purposeful commitment to Equity through:
Acknowledgment: We acknowledge the Abenaki Nation and the unceded land where we reside and make art. We also acknowledge that inequity exists among classes, races, ages, abilities, genders, and sexual orientations within our culture.
Accountability: We hold ourselves as a collective accountable to our commitment to address these inequities by educating ourselves on systems of oppression and how they are enacted within the Front, the art world, and within our community, taking deliberate actions toward a more equitable future.
Action: The Front’s Equity Committee looks at ways we can increase our equitable impact. We work to improve our membership policies and procedures, addressing visibility of artists of color and partnering with other art organizations to increase outreach towards marginalized communities and create offerings which address reparation and equity for all.
