We want to invite you into an initiative that started up in Calgary in June 2020. A number of us see the importance of keeping equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (EDIA) concerns front and centre as we go through so much change everywhere including the arts sector.
Gatherings will be facilitated by the Cultural Instigators (CI)*. Once a month we will gather to collectively discuss topics of EDIA to get grassroots ideas and actions going.
Have a question or a proposal for future conversation topics and themes? Send an e-mail to [email protected].
TOPICS OF DISCUSSION
February 23 | How do we move through shame into the actions of accountability?
Facilitated by jaqs gallos aquines
March 23 | Disability as Culture
Facilitated by JD Derbyshire and guest(s)
Details about April – July gatherings coming soon!!
*Cultural Instigators (CI) is an initiative to support artists involved in building equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility in their work to organize and to create artistic projects that build the community’s capacity to confront social issues. CI is funded by but not led by Calgary Arts Development.
