Dialogue on Diversity, Culture and Creativity
Civic Practice is concept that is gaining traction in the arts and non-profit arena around the country. Cultural institutions of all sorts are developing community partnerships that support and augment programming that surround mainstage productions.
However, arts organizations do not have to engage with non-arts partners solely through a lens of project-based needs. Institutions can sustain partnerships beyond singular projects - and that is when it becomes Civic Practice. These partnerships can effectively build relationships around meaningful, shared interests, and they help arts organizations broaden he scope of their presence in their local communities.
This conversation addresses the possibilities and the pitfalls, the questions and the hope associated with this work.
San Francisco Opera hosts the unity Conversation series to bring artists, educators and communities together through meaningful dialogue around today's most profound cultural issues.
Community members from all walks of life are encouraged to engage with distinguished speakers to challenge our collective thinking, promote tolerance, and create social change through racial equity in the arts.
