Host Toyin Oladele had a conversation with panelists Sanja Lukac, Visual & Media Arts Curator at Arts Commons, and Maud Salvi, Executive Director of Sled Island Music & Arts Festival, about hiring policies, practices and internal procedures that can help arts organizations hire and engage artists, staff and volunteers in an equitable way.

The discussion referred to statistics from the Calgary Arts Development Demographic Report, which can be found here.
