LIVESTREAM: Breaking Down the Gates: A Conversation About Curation and Inclusion in the Arts

This event will now be available live online. Visit tdps.events/breaking-down-gates.

Let’s talk openly about the impact of equity, diversity, and inclusion in curatorial practices in the fields of theater, dance, and visual arts. How does it impact our arts ecosystem? How does it impact our audience communities? Where are we in our evolution around these practices and learnings?

Participants in this panel discussion are Gerald Casel, a San Francisco–based dance artist and director of Gerald Casel Dance; playwright Dustin H. Chinn, whose Snowflakes, or Rare White People, will be presented April 24 through May 3 in The Playhouse at Zellerbach Hall; Mina Morita, artistic director of Crowded Fire Theater; and Maria Jenson, creative and executive director of SOMArts. The conversation is moderated by Miyuki Baker, a queer Zainichi artist, activist, and thinker finishing their PhD in performance studies at UC Berkeley.
