As our cultural sector strives to recover from the pandemic, a part of moving forward is creating a more equitable and human-centered working culture. Presented by the Office of Arts & Culture, this free virtual share-out features artists and cultural workers representing people of the global majority (BIPOC) highlighting initiatives, strategies, and ideas to inspire arts, cultural and heritage organizations on what it means to be more inclusive and anti-racist in how we move forward.

We invite anyone working in and with the arts, cultural, and heritage sector — cultural workers, artists, teaching artists, creatives, arts administrators, board members, volunteers, and supporters — to attend.

Arts Recovery Through Anti-Racist Action
Wednesday, November 16, 3 – 5 p.m. (Pacific)
