Chat & Chew Monthly Zoom Gatherings

Date: June 8, 2021
Time: 1:00 – 2:30pm MT

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.

Upcoming Topic: Supporting Palestine

In the past month, the world has witnessed Palestinians no matter where they are located united in their demand for a Free Palestine, a people and land free from systems of oppression and settler colonialism. How can artists come together in support and solidarity of the Palestinian struggle for freedom and justice? What does an artistic and cultural project look like in this context? 

Facilitated by Monda Mahmoud and Cesar Calla, don’t miss this impromptu Chat & Chew.

Cultural Instigators (CI) is an initiative to support artists involved in building equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility in their work to organize and to create artistic projects that build the community’s capacity to confront social issues, through an anti-racist framework. CI is funded by but not led by Calgary Arts Development.
