SMAC 2019 Arts Orgs SUMMIT
Tuesday, May 21 • 3:30 – 7:30pm (*note slight time change)
Held at Marshall Lyon Co Library – Community Room
FREE to Arts Organizations in the SMAC Region
This is SMAC’s annual FREE learning opportunity provided to arts organizations in the Southwest Minnesota region and we sincerely hope to see you and/or your arts organization represented. Join arts organizations of all types — theater, music, visual, arts councils and more — for an afternoon of learning & networking.
Focus for 2019: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)
“Serving the Underserved”: What does that mean for your rural arts organization?
We will be learning to address DEI through the Cultural Community Benefits Principles (CCBP) Toolkit developed by ArtChangeUS. The goal of the principles is to offer a values-driven and pragmatic approach to building equitable relationships by shifting our institutional practices. Every organization operates in its own context; the lessons, practices, and information contained in this toolkit should be used to spur reflection, conversation and creative thinking around DEI.
Principle 1: Build Inclusive Organizations
Principle 2: Honor Indigenous Peoples and Lands
Principle 3: Commit to Cultural Equity
Principle 4: Create Local Economic Benefits and Value
Principle 5: Contribute to Fieldwide Change
