Be The Change That You Want To See – Statement from Founder and Artistic Director Kate Prince
posted on Posted on

ZooNation: The Kate Prince Company creates work that aims to break down barriers and to fight racism, oppression, prejudice and inequality. We are anti-racist and endeavour to express that not just through the art we create, but also through our learning and participation work.

As an organisation founded by a Caucasian woman I recognise that this statement comes from a position of privilege. I also recognise that our work is predominantly inspired by black culture, and that without it, the success of ZooNation would not have been possible.

We stand strongly in support of all the black dancers, artists and creatives we have had the greatest pleasure of working with over the past eighteen years. We honour you, value you, respect you and love you. We want nothing more than for you to live and work in a safe environment, free of fear and to be able to raise children in a world where racism is extinguished.

Kate Prince, Founder and Artistic Director

It is with great sadness that due the outbreak of Covid19 there has been significant cancellations to ZooNation: The Kate Prince Company’s shows and dance classes planned over the coming months. 

We fully understand that curbing the spread of coronavirus must absolutely take priority over everything else. However, knowing the impact these various cancellations will have on our friends, artists and the wider artistic community is heartbreaking. 

We are working hard on finding a way to support everyone involved in our projects and will keep everyone regularly updated. In the meantime we send you all our heartfelt love at this difficult and challenging time.
