Promoting Equity and Self-Determination through Arts and Culture

Location: Salon D-E
Date: Thu, June 1
Time: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

For many historically ethnic communities, arts and culture have always been tools to help highlight the identity of a place. Today, arts and cultural strategies are also increasingly being deployed to work toward critical goals around preserving community authenticity, creating economic opportunity that is equitable, and organizing for justice and social change. This event will highlight the impact of creative place-making initiatives from across the country, and their strategies for building collaboration between local artists, philanthropists and community members with an emphasis on community self-determination.
