JOIN US AT THE TABLE FOR A KITCHEN TABLE CONVERSATION
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11 FROM 7 PM TO 9 PM, DANCEMAKERS BAKER STUDIO 314. 9 TRINITY STREET, TORONTO'S DISTILLERY HISTORIC DISTRICT
For all of us who work as leaders with and in the Canadian arts sector, there are new issues emerging. Among them, diversity and inclusion; the challenges of representation; cultural appropriation; and safeguarding. In recent months, some difficult debates and decisions have made clear the risks when artists and organizations fail to come to terms with these issues. Happily, we are also seeing bold new directions and beautiful new work emerge from this dialogue.
Thus, the BIG question we will discuss is: AS ARTS FUNDERS & ARTS LEADERS, WHAT ARE THE SIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS ABOUT THESE ISSUES IN FRONT OF US TODAY?
Our Kitchen Table Conversations are an informal dialogue around a BIG question, in a space where - much like a Kitchen Party - it’s easy and safe to disagree, air differences of opinions, quickly confirm or repudiate assumptions and organizational dogma, and generate new and innovative ways to look at or resolve a problem.
Let’s share our knowledge so that we can all better our practices!
