American Composers Forum to present Racial Equity and Inclusion Forum

Posted on: August 22, 2019

On Saturday, September 7, the American Composers Forum will present “Racial Equity and Inclusion Forum: Musical Creators Leading Change,” a daylong convening in Saint Paul, Minnesota for artists, administrators, and advocates to discuss racially inclusive and equitable opportunities for creative musicians. The forum will be free and open to the public, with a livestream available. The convening will focus on inclusive programming and the context of presenting the music of non-white artists; seeking out and engaging non-white composers and creative musicians; and refreshing the selection criteria to represent relevance and impact. The event is intended for artists, artistic administrators, music/artistic directors, executive directors, and producers who aim to build diversity and greater representation of non-white artists; artists seeking a forum for learning and connection about racial equity and inclusion; and community members. The forum is supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Click here for more information.
