About This Event

This session will discuss racial equity and cultural competence in program design, curriculum, and culture-setting in music education spaces. How can we combat the experience of 'cultural suicide' that young BIPOC often feel when entering music learning spaces that have long been dominated by White culture? How can we establish foundations of equity and inclusion in every aspect of our programming? In addition to answering these questions, Lecolion will provide tactical advice for how to implement change in your program today, and leave plenty of time for listener questions.

This event is for…

Administration, Teaching Artists, Young People, anyone interested in building culturally responsive structures in music learning environments
