The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis is committed to embracing diversity, practicing equity, and ensuring accessibility and inclusion. We will continually strive to achieve a welcoming environment in all our spaces, where staff, artists, board, and community feel reflected and valued for their unique perspectives and backgrounds. DEAI values will guide and impact all the decisions the museum makes, both internal and external, so that we are choosing a path toward ongoing transformation.
We embolden ourselves to carry out these values by:
- acknowledging our place in and actively working against our national problem of systemic racism and white supremacy;
- ensuring that underrepresented voices are included and heard;
- seeking out and building partnerships that represent our DEAI values;
- continuing to be a free gathering space and an open forum for ideas.
We enthusiastically take on the work of change. To remain true to these core values, we will hold ourselves accountable through a perpetual process of reflection and responsive action.
