April 18, 2018 at 7:30 p.m.

The Signet, 46 Dunster Street, Cambridge

“Even as music and performing arts organizations have made efforts towards inclusion, many organizations still struggle to make their programming more diverse and equitable. By bringing together a range of stakeholders – music critics, administrators, artists, and activists – this panel seeks to examine the various cultural and structural realities that have impeded progress and explore ways of creating a blueprint for a more equitable future.”
