Pandemic prompts new-look Achates Philanthropy Prize for 2020

first_img This year’s Achates Philanthropy Prize has been redesigned in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.For 2020, it will see no prizes awarded, with the campaign focusing on a UK-wide showcase of case studies from across the UK. Researched by regional Prize Ambassadors, these will show how cultural organisations have worked with their communities and how their communities have responded during this year.A shortlist of these case studies, selected by the Prize judges, will be showcased at a ceremony on Thursday 12 November 2020, curated and presented with HOME, Manchester. The ceremony will be preceded by a free one-day conference entitled Art, Audiences, Money, which will consider the future of the sector and the relationship between these issues.In previous years, the Achates Philanthropy Prize has asked cultural organisations across all art forms to nominate an individual, group, trust or company which has supported them for the first time, at all levels, within the last 12 months. The two winning arts organisations have received a £5,000 grant, with their nominated individual or company becoming the custodian of one of two prize sculptures for the year.This year, eight Achates Philanthropy Prize Ambassadors have been appointed to research and develop fifteen case studies each – from Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and each of the five ACE regions in England (London, South East, South West, North and Midlands). Each Ambassador is resident in their region and will compile a collection of case studies that will provide a snapshot into the role of cultural organisations within their communities in 2020.The Prize will also invite the public to celebrate local arts organisations that have made a difference to their community with the hashtag #artfeltthanks.Achates Philanthropy Foundation Chair, Caroline McCormick, said:“This year’s Achates Philanthropy Prize has been reimagined in response to the pandemic. We want to champion and celebrate the remarkable groundswell of innovative responses from cultural organisations across the country within their communities. The arts have immeasurable and far-reaching value beyond economic value alone, and this is our focus this year – be that intrinsic artistic value, or social value which brings benefits for social engagement, health and well-being, education and empowerment.“The eight Prize Ambassadors charged with researching fifteen case studies each in their region will be rigorous in their search for the broadest range of outstanding examples of the myriad ways we value and share art up and down the country. This showcase will be the central anchor of our Art, Audiences, Money conference, as we come together to think about the future of the sector.”A 19-strong panel of judges, including Javaad Alipoor, artist and writer; Deanne Bell, Doctor at Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust; Dr Alison Body, Lecturer in Philanthropic Studies at the University of Kent, and Alex Cheales, solicitor and Achates Philanthropy Foundation Trustee, will review the 120 case studies and hand-pick a shortlist which will be showcased at a special ceremony presented in partnership with HOME in Manchester on Thursday 12 November 2020.They will join Prize sponsors, partners and Achates Philanthropy Foundation Trustees to make the 2020 selection, and the full conference programme will be announced in September 2020.

U.N. panel backs call for reparations

first_imgMovement for Black Lives activists begin occupation and demand reparations.A comprehensive, up-to-date 22-page report by the U.N. Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent was released Aug. 18. It offers an overview of slavery, Jim Crow racism, lynching, the Civil Rights Movement and other historical and current events. It does not mince words. ( January, Working Group panelists traveled to several U.S. cities, including Baltimore, Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., and Jackson, Miss. Its members met with government officials and community organizations and members. Step by step, the report analyzed the racial disparity that Black people face in the U.S. legal system, voting rights, health, education, housing and ­employment.The report makes a stirring call for reparations for the African- American community: “[T]he legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent.”It stresses, “Contemporary police killings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching. Impunity for state violence has resulted in the current human rights crisis and must be addressed as a matter of urgency.”The document hails Black Lives Matter activists and their ongoing struggle, saying: “The Working Group is deeply concerned at the alarming levels of police brutality and excessive use of lethal force by law enforcement officials, committed with impunity against people of African descent in the United States.”Police killings: ‘tip of the iceberg’Moreover, “In addition to the … well-known cases of killings of unarmed African Americans … Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Walter Scott, Freddie Gray and Laquan McDonald — [we] received information about many other similar cases. … Killings of unarmed African Americans by the police [are] only the tip of the iceberg in what is a pervasive racial bias in the justice system.”It tells of the Chicago Police Accountability report, which shows that although African Americans constitute “only one-third of the city’s population, 74 percent of the 404 people shot by the Chicago police between 2008 and 2015 were Black, three out of every four people on whom Chicago police officers used Tasers between 2012 and 2015 were African Americans, and 72 percent of … street stops” not leading to arrests in “the summer of 2014 were carried out on African Americans.”The panel analyzed the mass incarceration of Black youth, racist use of the death penalty, role of police in the classroom who attack Black children, outrageous use of solitary confinement in prison and denial of effective medical treatment for hepatitis C infections.As for education, “The Working Group is concerned by the underfunding and closure of schools, particularly those in poor neighborhoods with significant African-American populations. In school curricula, the historical facts concerning … colonization, the trans-Atlantic trade in Africans, and enslavement, which have been crucial to the organization of contemporary American society, are not sufficiently covered in all schools.” In some states, curricula “fail to address adequately the root causes of racial inequality and injustice. This contributes to the structural invisibility of African Americans.”The Flint water crisis, huge wealth disparity, environmental racism and Black maternal deaths are also addressed in the document Activists working to effect change would find it most informative.Of course, presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have not seriously addressed the issues raised here. Neither supports the call for reparations for African-American and other oppressed communities. Nor did Bernie Sanders, despite the urging of prominent African-Americans, such as journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates who authored an eloquent call for reparations in the Atlantic magazine. ( contrast, Monica Moorehead and Lamont Lilly, Workers World Party’s presidential and vice presidential candidates, put reparations for the oppressed as the number-one issue in their campaign program.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF reaffirms commitment to net neutrality

first_img Online freedoms Freedom of expressionCitizen-journalistsInternet July 12, 2017 – Updated on December 1, 2017 RSF reaffirms commitment to net neutrality Help by sharing this information MARK RALSTON / AFP Organisation [23.11.2017 update] The United States Federal Communications Commission has unveiled plans to repeal an order requiring Internet service providers to respect net neutrality. RSF condemns this latest blow to freedom of information online.“Net neutrality is not an abstract concept for geeks,” said Elodie Vialle, the head of RSF’s Journalism and Technology Desk. “It’s what allows us to connect to the Internet and read news and information online. It concerns everyone. It’s a fundamental and essential condition for ensuring that readers have equal access to online content.”The definitive FCC vote on the proposal to reverse the Obama administration’s work will take place in mid-December. The commission’s decision will have worldwide repercussions, since the Internet giants are based in the US, a country that wields pivotal influence in digital matters.RSF therefore adds its voice to the many appeals from civil society and well-known figures as HBO talk-show host John Oliver.***********Restricted access to certain online content, additional charges to visit certain webpages, censored text and video content, arbitrarily slowed connections to certain platforms… net neutrality is under threat all over the world.“This founding principle of the Internet is an essential condition for online freedom of information and must be defended,” said Elodie Vialle, the head of RSF’s Journalism and Technology Desk.Although net neutrality has been challenged in recent weeks in the United States, dozens of NGOs, tech companies and websites have organized today’s day for action for net neutrality. Commercial Internet giants such as YouTube, Airbnb and Netflix, and advocacy groups such as Access Now have joined forces in the #BattleForTheNet initiative.As part of the day of action, the connections to certain participating sites are to be slowed down or blocked in order to simulate the consequences of ending net neutrality. Google and Facebook have issued statements announcing their support, although they have not specified what form their participation would take.Net neutrality threatened in the USEver since Donald Trump’s election, a battle has been underway in the United States between net neutrality’s advocates and an administration that has been fiercely opposed to it.On May 18, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) gave net neutrality’s opponents an initial victory when it voted to reconsider the regulations adopted in 2015 that make Internet providers treat all online content, apps and services in the same way.Net neutrality’s death is not final, but the process of public consultation currently underway could lead to the dismantling of the 2015 rules. RSF is completely opposed to any backpedalling that would unravel the commitments that the FCC gave under the Obama administration to treat the Internet as public property.Margaux Ewen, Advocacy and Communications Director for RSF North America, said last month: “The neutrality principle has made the Internet an open, creative and free space, but this is already under threat from the world’s authoritarian states, led by China and Iran. It would be disastrous if the United States were to give it up as well.”Net neutrality is essential in order to guarantee the freedom to inform. We must keep defending it. center_img Online freedoms Freedom of expressionCitizen-journalistsInternet At a time when net neutrality is more threatened than ever, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) reaffirms its call for all content to be treated equally and without discrimination with regard to Internet access and information circulation.

TV programme’s withdrawal at Vice-President’s behest condemned as censorship

first_img News Organisation Reporters Without Borders today condemned a decision by the state-owned Surinam Television Foundation (STVS) to cancel its “Surinam Today” discussion programme on 10 May under direct pressure from Vice-President Ram Sardjoe. The offending programme was about China-Taiwan relations.“This was an act of censorship,” the press freedom organisation said. “The strategic interests between Surinam and China cited by Vice-President Sardjoe are not grounds for government meddling in a news media’s programming, even a public one. We also condemn the pressure which STVS apparently received from Chinese diplomats in Paramaribo. We hope the debate will be broadcast subsequently.”Although Taiwan established itself as a separate political entity in 1949, it is still regarded as part of China by the government in Beijing. The vice-president cited political and commercial interests with China when he urged “Surinam Today” producer and editor Nita Ramcharan to kill the 10 May edition. After Ramcharan refused, Sardjoe got the STVS management to cancel the programme.Ramcharan said one of the journalists who had interviewed Chinese ambassador Su Ge for the programme later received telephone threats from diplomats, who said they did not the interview to be used in any programme in which pro-Taiwan advocates appeared. They even went to the station’s studios to put pressure on the management.The producers of “Surinam Today” have described the programme’s withdrawal as a violation of free speech. Sardjoe responded: “I regret that the producers think they have been censored, but the government must look to the country’s interests.” He also claimed that, rather than ban the programme, he just “strongly requested” that the subject be treated “with care.” He also insisted that his intervention “was not a form of censorship (or even) a restriction of the right of expression.”This is the second time that President Ronald Venetiaan’s government has had public TV content changed.
