In partnership with the Anti-Racism Network of Saskatoon, PAVED Arts staff and board invite you to come and participate in a conversation about anti-racism in the arts.

In this 3-part series, we invite you to share, listen, and question the role of organizations, artists, arts-admin, and boards through the lens of anti-racism.

Guiding this process will be our new organizational goals drafted within our “Commitment to Action,” a foundational, yet ever-fluid document that we hope will not only hold PAVED Arts accountable to our commitments, but support our organization as we work towards becoming a more equitable and accessible community space. PAVED Arts is grateful for the members of the Anti-Racism Network of Saskatoon, Justice Noon and Jebunnessa Chapola, who have offered their time and energy to join us in this conversation.Part 3 of this series will be guided by conversations on:

-How do we respond to the TRC Calls to Action within Arts organizations?

-Diversity – Equity – Inclusion in the Workplace

-Accessibility in Arts organizations

-Zero tolerance policies for hate speech, racism, sexism, misogyny, ableism, homophobia, transphobia as well as abusive, harmful and/or discriminatory language/behaviour.

-Ways forward – Where do we go from here?
