Arts & Cultural Equity: Current Examples and Relevant Strategies brings together arts and cultural workers, managers, educators, and students to share current insights, experiences, and practices around equity and leadership within arts and culture organizations.

  • Andre Middleton // Director of Equity & Digital Inclusion, Open Signal

This event additionally celebrates the 20th anniversary of  CultureWork: A Periodic Broadside for Arts & Culture Workers. CultureWork is a timely work-place oriented publication of the UO's Center for Community Arts & Cultural Policy, serving arts and cultural management practitioners by publishing commentaries, advisories, and case studies about trends and practices in community arts, cultural policy, arts and education, and arts management.
