About this event

The events of 2020 brought equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) into sharp focus for us all and it is fair to say that, in the UK, the Arts. These issues have been of increasing importance for the sector since Arts Council England (ACE) began the Creative Case for Diversity initiative in 2014. With the recent launch of the latest ACE ten-year strategy Let’s Create artists, creative practitioners and organisations have been charged with developing greater inclusivity, co-creative and collaborative relationships with members of the communities they serve, especially those currently under-represented. To date, much artist training in Higher Education has been based in a Western classical tradition. How do we begin the process of decolonisation of curricular, what is considered ‘excellence,’ who is and is not involved in the process of creating and making new art and why? Our speakers explore these issues with perspectives from Canada and the UK chaired by Debra King, CEO of Brighter Sound, an organisation at the forefront of inclusive practice and artist development.
