From Identity To Practice:
Diverse Perspectives of Equity in the Arts
Friday, June 23, 2:30 - 5:30pm
John Dutton Theatre,
Calgary Public Library
616 Macleod Trail SE
Calgary Congress for Equity & Diversity in the Arts (CCEDA) has partnered with Sled Island to present a free panel, and intentional dialogue, on equity & diversity in the arts.
Most of the current conversations on equity & diversity in the arts are focused on issues of identity, representation and inclusion. This focus can often minimize the needed relationship between diversity and equity. Our panelists are therefore purposely exploring how diverse identities influence equitable artistic practice, and our moderator is encouraging all who attend to join in on this unique exploration of equity & diversity in the arts.
