Arc Cultural Forum: Cultural Equity says
On Aug. 3, the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) will host the next in its series of community conversations on arts and culture.

The upcoming ARC Cultural forum on August 3rd at the Fox Theatre will focus on Cultural Equity and will feature three speakers who have been a regular part of the national conversation on this issue. We will be joined by Roberto Bedoya (People, Land, Arts, Culture and Engagement Initiative), Rebecca Burrell (Portland Community Media) and Brea Heidelberg (Rider University).

We will spend time together hearing about the vocabulary of equity, how these issues affect policy and placemaking, what it means to be an ally in this important work and more.
