Beyond Diversity: Inclusion in the Arts
Tuesday, November 15, 2016 | 9:30 am - 12:30 pm | 225 Franklin Street, Boston | Registration is Closed
ArtsBoston is pleased to bring Carmen Morgan, founder and director of artEquity to Boston to lead a discussion on issues of representation, cultural equity, and artistic freedom in our shifting artistic community. This highly interactive community discussion will provide attendees with steps to advance issues of equity and inclusion within their organizations, local arts community, and the larger arts sector.
Manuel Pastor has spoken eloquently on the subject of the “coming America” – a world where demographic shifts and rapidly evolving definitions of identity are unprecedented. As a result, a new brand of cultural leader and manager is being called upon in the arts.
What are the issues?
What is your role?
What is your responsibility?
Having the ability to engage in conversations across difference in a climate of change is no longer an option, it is a requisite skill that is in demand.
