The #notwhite collective in-Dialogue series features conversations with BIPOC, AALANA, indigenous and immigrant artists and arts administrators.
The series reimagines the past and present history of the arts sector by engaging and presenting the wealth of experience, strategies, and tactics of the global majority, notwhite descendants, inheritors of colonialism, indigenous and immigrants who navigate a predominantly white arts sector.
Celebrating and recognizing arts and cultural workers, especially those who tend to be under the radar and forgotten about, speakers represent the Greater Western Pennsylvania region as well as national leaders in the arts.
