More Than a Moment Pledge

We want to help make radical and bold change

The More Than A Moment pledge is the West Midlands arts sector’s promise to take radical, bold and immediate action, to dismantle the systems that have for too long kept Black artists and creatives from achieving their potential in the arts and cultural industries.

Organisations who sign up to the pledge, wholeheartedly commit to ensuring equity, investment in, and opportunities with and for Black artists and creatives within their organisation’s culture and work, and in doing so, becoming the change we all need to see.

This pledge and process was designed and created in Summer and Autumn 2020 by the More Than a Moment Working Group, in partnership with the Black Creative Workforce and West Midlands Cultural Sector, to be a promise for radical and permanent change. It was launched on 29 October 2020.

West Midlands Combined Authority along with Culture Central and many other stakeholders support this pledge.

The More Than a Moment community acknowledge and thank all of the Black Creative Workforce for their time, honesty and emotional labour in contributing to meetings and the Radically Listening research.
