Accountability Framework

What does accountability mean to Theatre Passe Muraille?
Avinash, Janice, Marjorie, Darren, Sue, and Angela and Indrit smile together and are collaged onto a dark blue graphic, with two red lines along each vertical side that surround the words "Accountability Framework"

Theatre Passe Muraille is committed to:

– Being open to having in-depth conversations about equity, diversity, accessibility, and inclusion at our theatre. 

– Increasing the intersectional representation of Indigenous, Black, and Persons of Colour on our staff, Board, artistic and creative teams, and within our audiences.

– And, holding ourselves accountable to the broader community through action.

In support of these commitments, TPM has developed the Accountability Framework along with our board, staff and community consultants to ensure that we are living our values of equity, diversity, accessibility, and inclusion in a transparent and thoughtful way. Our Accountability Framework includes specific goals and quantifiable commitments to equity and inclusion that will continue to guide our work and operations moving forward. We recognize that the work will be ongoing, and the site will be updated accordingly. 

Our Framework is living, breathing, and always responsive to the changing world around us. We know that real change takes time and we want to get it right so that our words can truly lead to deep-rooted, wide-reaching, and permanent change at TPM. These actions are only part of the work that we do at TPM. Our larger strategic plan addresses activities and initiatives across all aspects of our organization; including the Board, our artistic team, staff, volunteers, and community.  

The Accountability Framework on this webpage will serve as a record of where we are on this journey.  We encourage you to keep holding us accountable as we work towards a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive Theatre Passe Muraille.
