Leon Braithwaite thanked Visionary Arts and the audience for their ongoing support:
Martina Barton, Show Racism the Red Card Southern Region Education Coordinator commented following the awards:
We were invited to attend the VisionaryArts Awards at the Ham Yard Hotel in London last night. First of all, a very big thank you to VisionaryArts especially Adrian Grant giving us the opportunity to raise our profile by being their chosen charity at this prestigious event. Several times that evening I had a chance to talk about our charity, the work we do and how proud I am to be part of Show Racism the Red Card.
I felt honoured and inspired being surrounded by people who have all dedicated their life’s making positive changes using the platform of arts, culture, media and entertainment. Together everyone is raising awareness and making differences in society, whether this is tackling racism, poverty, mental health, sexual abuse, climate change, disability discrimination and LGBTQ. They give people who are never heard, a voice.
Show Racism the Red Card are humbled and honoured to be chosen as the official charity partner for the Visionary Arts awards 2023.
We commend the work of the Foundation and are inspired by their use of the arts to raise marginalised voices and raise awareness to tackle important social issues. Show Racism the Red Card would like to wish all the nominees the best of luck and look forward to celebrating and recognising the achievements of those who are striving to make our world a better place.” – Ged Grebby, SRtRC CEO.
