STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY
Ko supports and honors the activists and community members who have taken to the streets this week across the country to defend human and civil rights and demand justice for Black Americans.
We grieve with and for the families of George Floyd, Tony McDade, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the many others brutally murdered at the hands of the state and of white civilians.
Ko stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter; with Black, Indigenous, and POC artists, and colleagues; and with the movement-building cultural organizations, collectives, and individuals that have invested decades and generations in the struggle to undo systemic racism.
We call on our larger community to listen and respond to the national and local leadership of these and other frontline organizers who are, as ever, leading us in this moment with grace and integrity. Please help leverage and distribute resources to support their labor and amplify their vision, as you’re able.
MORE ON OUR 2020 PLANS
We’re also busy researching digital infrastructures and best practices while talking with artists who have previously appeared, or who were scheduled to appear at the Ko, to see if we can offer you shows never before seen at Ko – either pre-taped or streaming live — and perhaps even a commission or two for some new work!
