Saturday, February 3 from 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM
Location: Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church - 921 Madison Ave., New York, NY 10021
$10 for members, $15 for non-members
A chance to join with your choral colleagues to share best practices and gather new ideas in an informal, welcoming atmosphere!
Diversity, equity, inclusion, access, belonging, representation: Whatever the acronym of choice, ADEI became, for many arts organizations, a focal point during the pandemic year, a catalyst for renewal and reassembly, perhaps the source of a reinvigorated organizational mission or vision. Whether experienced as the renewal of a longstanding purpose, or all too often as a wake-up call, choruses all over the country are engaged in a vibrant dialogue on how we can translate ADEI aspirations into actions. The New York Choral Consortium’s own Diversity in Action initiative is but one example.
We thought this year’s Membership Day could be used to offer all our member organizations an opportunity to take stock of the last several years of lived experience in this area. We will organize the morning into breakout sessions as we all share our perspectives, and regroup as a whole after lunch to compare notes on what has worked, and what has not worked, in the service of achieving our goals.
We are delighted to be able to welcome and include representatives of Chorus America in our February 3 sessions, bringing relevant experience and insights from the national level.
Membership Day will be of keen interest to artistic directors, executive directors, board members, and staff from all member organizations. Please spread the word to everyone who may be interested, and register as soon as possible using the link below so that we can better organize the various discussion groups.
We hope you are able to add your voice to the discussion on February 3.
