Archived May 18, 2021 Chat & Chew Monthly Zoom Gatherings A monthly grassroots gathering for the collective re-imagining of an equitable and just future for the arts in Calgary. Date: May 25, 2021 Fourth Tuesday of each month from 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. Have a question or a proposal for future conversation topics and themes? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Add reminders to your Google Calendar at calendar.google.com. Upcoming Topic Despite the overwhelming weight of racism, what are the seeds of agency and resilience to be unearthed and replanted in ourselves and in our communities? This month we gather for a collective conversation on this question that extends across artists and communities seeking equity. In celebration of Asian Heritage Month, we invite a few artist-citizens with lived experience to offer starting reflections. 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. For more information and to RSVP, visit chatchewyyc.eventbrite.ca.
