The Cultural Equity Conversation

In May, Americans for the Arts (AFTA) released a Statement on Cultural Equity, coming after a year of work and conversation with members, advisory council members, stakeholders in the arts field, board, staff, and partners. The final statement reads: β€œTo support a full creative life for all, Americans for the Arts commits to championing policies and practices of cultural equity that empower a just, inclusive, equitable nation.”

Cultural equity is a hot topic, and the blogosphere responded with plenty of rich food for thought. So, instead of a single featured blog this month, we invite you to sample a range of reactions to the AFTA statement and let us know what you think by commenting at the end of this article.
