#BAMEOver: Is It Time We Stopped Using the Term BAME in the Sector?
Difficult Conversations | 4th December 2020 @ 14.00
There has been much debate in the arts sector regarding the usage of the term BAME (which hasn’t reached the affordable housing sector yet) called #BAMEover – not wanting to be grouped into a collective term, or reduced to acronyms. Campaigners state that the acronym BAME, which stands for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic, is redundant, inaccurate and neglects the diversity, humanity and lived experience of those from ethnic minority backgrounds. Many of the UK’s leading arts producers and leaders have long ago dropped the use of “BAME” and “BME” in their places of work. Is it time for the housing sector to follow suit?
