Are We There Yet?: Global Intersections
CDS - Chaufferie
How far have we really come, culturally, socially and politically in the last several years? The visibility of issues around gender, sexuality and diversity has certainly affected the tenor of mainstream conversations, creating a greater awareness of demographics and structural bias—even resulting in shifts in institutional, cultural and governmental policies—in certain industries and countries. Music and art worlds have often lead these social and cultural shifts, by giving voice, creating space and challenging norms. This session involves artists who come from very different socio-economic and political hemispheres, and who use their art and music to express, and make change—providing a broad view of how lived experiences vary around the world.
