The Board of Griffin has adopted the present controversy across the 2022 Sydney Pageant with concern.

With two works featured as a part of this system—Window Cricket Bat and Inexperienced Park—we're conscious of calls to withdraw in response to the Pageant’s acceptance of funding from the Israeli embassy.

Now we have spent the previous fortnight consulting with our Pageant artists, our workers, wider inventive neighborhood and key stakeholders, and regarded the moral and monetary implications of numerous responses together with withdrawing from and remaining within the Pageant. We acknowledge that, in such a passionate and divisive matter, each potential plan of action holds the chance of inflicting damage to folks we worth—from our artists, to our workers, to our donors, to fellow small arts organisations and the broader neighborhood we're right here to assist.

Nonetheless, our monetary and contractual preparations imply that if our productions have been withdrawn from Sydney Pageant, Griffin must cancel each seasons outright. This could in flip current important monetary threat to the corporate, in extra of $100,000. As a comparatively small arts organisation, this may severely impression our operations and program in 2022.

It might additionally imply the lack of work for artists.

The latter has, above all else, knowledgeable our determination to stay within the Pageant. We consider it's in line with Griffin’s values and actions during the last two years of the pandemic, the place we've labored arduous to create revenue and monetary stability for actors, writers, administrators, designers and stage managers.

We stay up for collaborating within the overview to be carried out by the Pageant into its insurance policies and practices.
