Anti-Racism Virtual Town Hall

Anti-Racism Virtual Town Hall

As an organization, Calgary Arts Development has committed ourselves to bettering our systems regarding equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (EDIA). This summer Calgary Arts Development hosted a series of virtual town halls to discuss issues around the deep-seated racism that exists within our communities and systems, and how we can further develop anti-racist policies and practices governing our work.

The work to confront and dismantle racism falls on everyone of us as we try to build equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility in our institutions, systems, communities, and networks.

Continuing this conversation, our next town hall on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 acts as a wrap-up to the series of conversations we hosted over the summer, with reflections on what we heard, what we learned, and what we are thinking about as we move forward.

The October 7 virtual town hall takes place through Zoom from 3:00 to 4:30pm MDT and will be interpreted in American Sign Language (ASL) with a live transcription available. Register at to take part.
