Statement of Diversity and Inclusion
We believe that our mission is most effectively fulfilled through a commitment to inclusiveness as a core value and practice. We maintain that building and sustaining diversity requires an ongoing commitment to inclusion that must find full expression in our organizational culture, values, norms, and behaviors.
Throughout our work, we support diversity across all lines of difference, including age, economic circumstance, ethnicity, sex, race, range of ability, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity/expression. We aim to lead by example, viewing and encouraging diversity as a fundamental and abiding strength of the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts.
The Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts recognizes that its effectiveness will be enhanced, and its mission well served, when the practice of inclusion is reflected in all aspects of the organization.
About Suffolk Center
Suffolk High School, built in 1922, has been restored and re-purposed as the premier visual and performing arts venue for Suffolk. In the heart of downtown, the classic Greek-Revival structure houses a 530 seat theater which is the stage for concerts, ballets, musicals, dramatic works, symphony performances, films, children’s plays, lectures and so much more.
Two beautiful art galleries flank the Birdsong Theatre and host an ever-changing array of world-class exhibits. The galleries also provide additional space for special event rentals.
This unique 78,000 square foot facility offers endless opportunities for entertainment, education, dining, meetings and more.
