Walsall for All Pledge

 

The New Art Gallery Walsall is delighted to announce it has signed the Walsall for All Pledge, as part of the pledge we declare our support for a more integrated Walsall; to do what we can to help make Walsall fairer for everyone and to connect with other people and organisations that share our goals.

 

Stephen Snoddy, Gallery Director said ‘The New Art Gallery Walsall is committed to the Walsall for All Pledge to work in partnership to promote cohesion and integration across the communities and equality for all to work, learn and play for a better future. We will strive to make Walsall a fairer place for everyone’.

 

The Pledge aims to encourage individuals, groups and organisations to sign up to promoting cohesion, equality, inclusion and integration. Within the pledge are learning opportunities to develop an understanding of these key areas.

 

The Pledge is one of a range of projects being delivered through Walsall for All, a borough-wide, long-term strategy for creating strong and integrated communities in Walsall. It recognises our collective strengths as well as our challenges, and sets out the steps Walsall will take to break down barriers to integration.
