Black Lives Matter
Tiny Dynamite stands in solidarity with all those working for justice and for dismantling white supremacy. Our hearts are with you and with the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, and all who have been harmed by systemic racism and violence in Philadelphia and across the nation. While recent stories of police brutality have made headlines, many more wrongs against Black Americans have gone uninvestigated or hidden from view. We grieve them all.
A central value of our company is to create experiences for our audiences that are welcoming and communal, operating from a spirit of joyful reinvention. We acknowledge our responsibility to foster an anti-racist environment for our audiences, affirm our commitment to anti-racist practices at every level of our company’s operations, and create work with equitable practices for all our artists. We will work for greater equity, community, and joy, for all Philadelphians. We can do better and we will.
