Session 1: Grounding Cultural Policy & Racial Equity in the Public Sector
Wednesday, June 8 at 11am PDT | 2pm EDT

Join us for the first Cultural Policy Action Lab Learning Series! This session will outline the most common policy mechanisms for arts & culture in the public sector with a lens on how these tools have historically reinforced inequity. Join Randy Engstrom, Jen Cole, and Estrella Esquilin to explore case studies and examples from leaders in the field who have reframed common public policies like cultural plans and cultural space planning with a lens toward belonging, self-determination, and community wealth building.

Be sure to register here for tomorrow's session.
