Ruskin Statement on Racism: Education for Change
The Ruskin School of Art deplores racism. Both staff and students try to live systematically by this principle. But we know that we can do more, and we will do so.
We have a responsibility to speak out, and to ask those difficult and uncomfortable questions which we have not asked, or have not asked persistently enough.
Education is about listening and learning from others. We need to acknowledge our ignorance and complicity in discriminatory systems. Only if we educate ourselves can we educate better. Only if we look harder will we see what needs to change.
We commit to such education for change. Now more than ever.
