DEIA Statement

The Exploration Place’s mandate includes the priorities of inclusiveness, fairness, and intercultural respect. The Exploration Place acknowledges, honours, and celebrates the diverse and unique range of communities, ideas, experiences, approaches, and perspectives. As such, The Exploration Place pledges to embrace cultural differences and advance equity, access, and social justice as the fundamental foundations of our work. We are committed to eliminating discrimination, ensuring equitable treatment, and promoting accessibility at all organizational levels, our curatorial practices, our physical building, and all of our programming. We commit to diversity on our Board of Trustees, staff team, volunteers, partners, collaborators, and audiences. The Exploration Place looks to be a leader, modelling inclusiveness and diversity throughout the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George.

When everyone is welcome, respected, and included, and when all can fully and actively participate in our work both present and future, The Exploration Place, our members, and our society will be stronger, more successful, more caring, and more just.
