Walk the Plank is an outdoor arts company with a 30+ year history of working across the UK and internationally, based in Salford, Greater Manchester. We have a small core team of 13 staff with an extended circle of artists, creative practitioners, and freelancers that we work with at our headquarters in Salford and in the places we work. All our work responds to the people and places where we work and often includes co-curation with local communities.
We see ourselves as an inclusive organisation, and we continue to work on what this means and recognise that this is an ongoing process that requires action and resource. We have a cross-departmental team participating in Arts Marketing Association’s Breakthrough programme during 2023 to transform our organisation with a whole team approach to inclusivity. We have developed a plan to help us to unlock the changes required to move forward, including developing this Anti-Racism Statement and Policy.
