A monthly grassroots gathering for the collective re-imagining of an equitable and just future for the arts in Calgary.
This initiative started 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 Citizen Artists YYC*. Once a month we will gather to collectively discuss topics of EDIA through an anti-racist lens to get grassroots ideas and actions going.
Have a question or a proposal for future conversation topics and themes? Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
