Chat & Chew Monthly Zoom Gatherings

We want to invite you into an initiative that started up in Calgary in June 2020. A number of us see the importance of keeping equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (EDIA) concerns front and centre as we go through so much change everywhere including the arts sector.

Gatherings will be facilitated by the Cultural Instigators (CI)*. Once a month we will gather to collectively discuss topics of EDIA through an anti-racist lens to get grassroots ideas and actions going.

Dates: Fourth Tuesday of each month, 1:00 – 2:30pm MT
April 27, May 25, June 22, July 27, 2021
