OISTAT on Russia-Ukraine Crisis / Mar 21, 2022

OISTAT condemns any form of violence and aggression against humanity and the violation of international law. We hope for the restoration of peace, freedom, and security in the home of the Ukrainian people.

After receiving and reviewing the broad input from OISTAT members, the EC met and makes its statement on the Russia-Ukraine crisis:

OISTAT condemns any form of violence and aggression against humanity and the violation of international law. OISTAT is an inclusive organization for individuals working in all fields of the performing arts around the world. Our mission is to promote the formation of OISTAT Centres with the participation of individuals, alliances, and institutions in all regions of the world, to respect the integrity of all cultures, and celebrate the diversity as well as the similarities of those who work in support of live performance.

We believe that individuals should not be penalized for the terrible actions of an oppressive regime. According to OISTAT Inclusion Policy, all approved OISTAT events must be open to all OISTAT member organizations, associate members, and individuals in all regions, and all OISTAT member organizations, associate members, and individuals in all regions are treated equally and without prejudice.

On the current Russia-Ukraine conflict, we recognize the Russian government as the aggressor, as well as recognize that its actions are not unanimously supported by Russian citizens. While this conflict continues, OISTAT will address the membership with care, taking into consideration each request separately, through communication with members in conflict areas.

We encourage our colleagues to assist by their own means in ending human suffering and the end of the war in Ukraine, we hope for the restoration of peace, freedom, and security in the home of the Ukrainian people.

OISTAT will stay open as a global network that provided sites for professional dialogue, cultural understanding, and free speech. By joining OISTAT and being part of this community, you agree to be aligned with the missions above and the values shared in our organization.

OISTAT President Messege ! [Shaken by the current conflict in the World]

Dear OISTAT friends,

We are all very shaken by the current conflict in the world. The escalation of the Russia-Ukraine crisis turned into war and its consequences concern us all.
Several conversations are ongoing within the OISTAT community and we have an EC OISTAT meeting scheduled soon to discuss how to approach it as a community and to issue an official statement.
In the meantime, we have been in contact with colleagues from the countries in conflict and their neighbors, as well as collecting the diverse opinions and manifestations of the OISTAT members.

Please feel welcome to share your thoughts by email to me directly with copy to HQ if you wish to do it.

Sincerely,

Aby Cohen
President
