  • Introduction: We all start from a place of wanting to share our creative work with a broader audience, but does inviting diverse audiences truly make everyone feel welcome?

Creative Impact Workshop Postcard_2019_frontWe all start from a place of wanting to share our creative work with a broader audience, but does inviting diverse audiences truly make everyone feel welcome?  In this session you’ll hear first-hand accounts of what has made people of color and marginalized groups feel truly welcome—or unwelcome at arts events. Following a panel of first hand experiences, Sharifa Johka of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival will share concrete examples of how the Shakespeare Festival is addressing equity to become a more inclusive cultural organization.
