I am very happy to share with the readers of Arts & Culture Connections the link to a compilation podcast put together by Capacity Interactive to further expand the conversation at this critical time about equity, diversity, inclusion and access within the arts community.
In addition to an interview conducted with me by CI founder Erik Gensler, this compilation includes interviews with leaders in the field—frontline champions for ED&I and access to the arts.
Terri Lee Freeman, executive director of the National Civil Rights Museum
Jessica Schmidt, founder of Orchestra Inclusion
Cardozie Jones, Equity Coach and Consultant for the Center for Strategic Solutions
Robin DiAngelo, Ph. D., author of White Fragility
Afa Dworkin, President and Artistic Director of the Sphinx Organization
I believe you will find the wisdom and suggestions shared in these six interviews integral to the dialogues and efforts to address racism and inequity in the arts. As always, I’d like to know your thoughts. Please share them below.
Be Safe! Be Well! Stay Strong!
