From Intention to Action: Devising Tangible Steps for Equitable Ensembles

Register for the first in our EMFUSA2020 event series in NYC!

In this devising space, we utilize the practices of intention, action, and even failure within a peer-learning-circle context to explore cultural equity questions: How do we move our ensemble practice from intentions connected to a single project/production to a longer term set of practices (actions) that manifest more equitable outcomes for artists? How are ensembles challenging our own companies, the ensemble field, and the NET community to move forward toward equity, justice, and collective liberation? How are historically or majority white ensembles addressing systemic inequities or incorporating anti-racism, anti-oppression, and EDI practice in our creative work, and our organizations…and what new and unexpected challenges are we finding as we do? How are ensemble values and co-creation practices a model or guide in these efforts? Together we hear from a few invited ensembles about their successful steps (as well as mis-steps and blunders), then open the discussion for participants to share stories, questions, tools, strategies, and resources that move us into action.

Facilitators: Claudia Alick (NET Board Co-President; Calling Up Justice) & Alison De La Cruz (NET Board Member; Japanese American Cultural & Community Center).
