How can we create a more equitable arts sector in New York City?

  • Begin your day with: a call to action!

Our Keynote Speaker, writer/ performer/ educator Renée Watson, will share insights from her experience as an artist leading arts equity work. Renée's most recent project - "i, too arts collective" - resides in the former home of Langston Hughes in Harlem.

  • Then: strategies for action!

A Plenary Session where the community will share strategies for creative process and equitable practice.

  • End your day with: community!

 Network with your peers and enjoy free libations!
