Equity and Inclusion in Canadian Arts Organizations: An Ongoing Labor
“We, Indigenous artists, check a lot of your boxes for grants, and for diversity, but what does that really translate to? You want us and you need us at your tables, your conferences and your festivals. But you haven’t done the work to actually welcome us, build a relationship with us and protect us.”
CAPACOA’s All Access Town Hall titled Rebuilding Upon More Sustainable and Equitable Foundations – Equity & Inclusion took place virtually on November 3rd, 2020. The intimate discussion explored implications and actions of rebuilding a new sector with equity and inclusion enshrined in Canadian arts organizations, businesses or artistic practices.
