Cultural Equity Forum – #1
3rd Feb 2023
Cultural Equity Forum
With Susuana Amoah, Monday 27th February 2023, 4-5pm
As part of our VISUALISE programme, we have invited Susuana Amoah to create a series of open digital forums for art workers on cultural equity and social justice. Participants can present and discuss upcoming/work-in-progress projects aimed at improving cultural equity in the contemporary visual arts sector. As well as helping you develop your work, this forum aims to enable everyone taking part to be aware of new initiatives, ideas, and directions developing within the contemporary visual arts sector.
What is Cultural Equity?
“Cultural equity embodies the values, policies, and practices that ensure that all people—including but not limited to those who have been historically underrepresented based on race/ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion—are represented in the development of arts policy; the support of artists; the nurturing of accessible, thriving venues for expression; and the fair distribution of programmatic, financial, and informational resources” (Americans for the Arts)
How do I get involved?
Cultural Equity Forums will be held every two months from 27th February on Google Meet. Each presentation is expected to be around 20 minutes in length, followed by a 20-minute open discussion. If you would like to present a project that you are working on please send a max. 250-word project blurb and 100-word bio to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title Cultural Equity Forum. Submission closing date: 10th February 2023
