Through this session we will (1) dig deeper into the practice and theory of (cultural) equity and (2) reflect on our own social location (power analysis) with tools that can be brought into our cultural/arts work.
We’ll explore questions and share solutions:
How do arts workers, leaders, and artists advance the conversation on cultural equity across the sector and beyond?
How can we tackle institutional or systemic oppression or rethink creative place keeping strategies
How does having our own personal power analysis strengthen our lives and practice as cultural/arts workers?
