Diversity & Inclusion: The arts for social change.
RiverPark Center creates an environment that reflects our community and is a place where everyone is empowered to be their authentic selves. We acknowledge the inherent worth of all people, embrace everyone’s unique identities and experiences, and celebrate our common humanity. Together, in partnership, we build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, responds to, and applauds the diverse voices of our community, patrons, board members, volunteers, and staff.
The arts are a powerful platform for social change. The Center provides culturally diverse programming that broadens representation, empathy, and understanding of the past while envisioning and working towards a shared, more equitable future.
RiverPark Center Land Acknowledgement
At RiverPark Center, we acknowledge the lives and cultures of those here before the first colonial developments of the Ohio Valley — the Indigenous Nations of the Cherokee, Shawnee, Osage, and Yuchi. When the original inhabitants of this land are not recognized, painful legacies are perpetuated. We offer gratitude for the land itself and for those who have been stewards of the land for generations. We honor and respect the Indigenous people and cultures present today, resilient and strong.
