It will be six years since the TRC Calls to Action were published. And while there is no mention of the arts and very little about culture, individual artists and arts and culture organizations have embraced the call for reconciliation, and maybe more recently, truth. How do you see these efforts? Has anything in the arts and culture sector changed? For the better or not? What would you like to see happen now, next steps?
Each panelist will talk for ten to fifteen minute expanding on where they see the arts and culture sector today. There will be discourse between the panelists, questions from the moderators and the virtual audience for the second part of this panel.
