Artist Roundtable: Black and Brown Culture Makers

date & time Tuesday, July 9 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

location Performance Works, Granville Island

A dedicated gathering for artists, curators and cultural producers who self-identify as South Asian and/or Black, invited to gather and share points of connection and solidarity. This facilitated dialogue aims to create space for meaningful relationship building and thoughtful discussion.

This event provides a unique industry space away from the white gaze, where participants can explore critical questions that influence our cultural landscapes:

• How can artistic and cultural  programming actively challenge the dominant narrative?

• What are the possibilities for our work within ‘mainstream’ art spaces versus creating our own distinct spaces?

• What supports do our communities need to build stronger connections and solidarity with each other?

This event will conclude with a networking opportunity for attendees to continue their conversations, deepen relationships, and collaboratively envision the future of our cultural spheres.

Light lunch will be provided.

Facilitated By Khari Wendell McClelland and Preeti Dhaliwal
