Dear EAP Network, 

Registration for Emergence 2016 is now open!

This year's theme is Crafting Equity, Shifting Power. Join us on Monday, May 23rd from 10:30am-4:30pm at the Contemporary Jewish Museum for an inspiring day of critical introspection and collective strategizing.

At Emergence 2016: Crafting Equity, Shifting Power, we are asking:

  • What is a cultural equity framework for arts administration in the Bay Area and how can we become empowered to facilitate implementation in our organizations?
  • How do we collectively & individually create space to understand power, privilege, and cultural equity?
  • How do we effectively practice sustainability on the personal, professional and organizational level?
 For the full schedule complete with the program and speaker information, please visit the EAP SF/BA Emergence website.

If you're interested in volunteering for the event, complete this form by May 10th. We ask you commit to support Emergence with three (3) hours of volunteer time either before or during the event.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

Lauren Benetua, EAP SF/BA Jolly Good Fellow
