Statement of Vision, Mission and Values
Vision
Border Crossings will be a global leader in intercultural dialogue between artists and audiences, working through theatre to facilitate mutual understanding, positive development and peace.
Mission
In response to the contemporary globalised world, Border Crossings creates a theatrical and cultural space in which peoples come together as equals for creativity and dialogue.
Values
1. Equality
Border Crossings fosters and promotes intercultural dialogue and international exchange between artists on an equal basis. We recognise and value the contributions made by all the artists and staff involved in our work, and seek to reward those contributions fairly. We aim to make our work accessible to the widest range of audiences.
2. Difference
Border Crossings champions a community of diverse peoples, practices, and ideas. We foster a culture which embraces diversity, respect for the individual and the expression of talent, and engages a broad and varied international audience.
3. Collaboration
Border Crossings produces theatre that is communally created. We strive for a shared vision through dynamic communication, while celebrating the individual voice, the synthesis of competing priorities and the acknowledgement of all contributions.
4. Innovation
Border Crossings encourages and develops theatre that is culturally, socially and politically progressive and challenging. The company recognises the value of theatre as an attribute of democracy and intercultural dialogue, with the capacity to effect real transformations in people’s lives. We are open to new ideas, striving to be creative and innovative, neither bound by formality nor constrained by convention.
