As a publicly-funded organisation, we commit to take positive policy measures to promote equality of opportunity, access and outcomes for all those living in Ireland regardless of their gender identity, sexual orientation, civil or family status, religion, age, disability, race or membership of the Traveller community, as well as socio-economic background. We acknowledge in particularly an absence of Black, people of colour, Traveller, Roma and working-class representation in the literature world in Ireland. We commit to identifying our own shortcomings and blind spots. We will prioritise anti-racism research and training, and examine the ways in which the Irish Writers Centre can meet the needs of marginalised writers through our work. Read our full statement here.
