NEW Anti-Racism Pledge


NIE releases new Anti-Racism pledge.


New International Encounter (NIE) stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and all those fighting injustices of systemic racism. We know that we can do more to tackle racism as an organisation.

We have been taking time to educate ourselves, and are making a commitment to do that work and take steps in becoming actively anti-racist. With our partners across the world, we join in the non-violent fight for justice, equity and peace. We are taking time to educate ourselves by reflecting on our actions and history.

With this in mind, we have updated our policies and created a new anti-racism pledge which you can find on our website here. This is a call to action from NIE, to hold ourselves accountable and to make the work we do transparent in promoting diversity and equality.

We understand that this will continue to be an ongoing conversation and we welcome feedback.

The full pledge can be found here:

If you have any questions, comments or would like to have a conversation with us about this statement or the work of NIE, please get in touch, email Artistic Co-Director, Alex Byrne  (UK) or Kjell Moberg (Norway)
