The Association of American Cultures: Open Dialogue XII
(1-22-10) The Association of American Cultures (TAAC) is accepting proposal submissions for its next symposium Open Dialogue XII: Building the 21st Century Agenda for Cultural Democracy, a symposium of local and national leaders discussing policies and programs which individuals, organizations, foundations, and policy makers are encouraged to strategize and organize around in order to further advance cultural democracy and cultural equity platforms AND programs in today’s new era of change. Recognizing some quantitative progress in equity and diversity issues over the last three to four decades, it is most urgent at this historic time of change to evaluate and set forth action-agendas around TAAC's foundational pillars for real, substantive, long-term change:
- Equal participation in policymaking,
- Equitable funding for all cultural institutions, and
- Equity in multicultural leadership.
