Through our consulting experiences we found that many performing arts genres are facing the same challenges, even if those challenges use different terms. We want to ensure that we are not using the terms diversity, equity, and inclusion as coded language for what we really mean. We also want to highlight the amazing work that is being done in the performing arts community to support solidarity, action, joy, and healing.
ACTION: Our panelists will share the actions they have taken within their industries to create change.
Panelists: JENNIFER ARNOLD - GERI BROWN - ALYSSIA DUDA - THERESA RUTH HOWARD - LAUREN E. TURNER
SOLIDARITY: Our panelists will discuss how collaboration has been a key factor in standing with and lifting up marginalized groups.
Panelists: VANESSA CRUZ - BLUE FLAME - TITO MUNOZ - SHAYNA SCHLOSBERG
HEALING: We will hear about how our panelists have prioritized healing as a necessary means of moving forward.
Panelists: CHERLNELL LANE - UGOCHI NWAOGWUGWU - ALLISON WALSH - RAHEIM WHITE
COMMUNITY CIRCLE: We bring together a diverse group of people in a welcoming and respectful environment. Community Circles encourage (but do not force) participants to share stories in small groups, using tailored prompts and questions that elicit stories of empowerment and agency for the performing arts community.
EXPERIENCE JOY: We will pause to collectively breathe through meditation, test our musical knowledge, and let loose at our dance party.
