Activate Equity

Activate Equity is our day-long gathering of artists, cultural workers, activists, and educators tackling the question, "How can we create a more equitable arts sector in New York City?"

We invite those who recognize the challenges and systemic issues at play in the arts & culture sector, and want to create innovative solutions for addressing them. This program is action oriented, with multiple ways for participants to engage and contribute - ultimately aiming to introduce new models, information, techniques, resources and connections.
