This conference on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the Cultural Sector: The Role of Cultural Organizations aims to bring together researchers, artists, practitioners, and cultural workers interested in EDI in cultural environments throughout Canada.

The overall objective of this project is to foster communication between researchers and practitioners in order to generate new knowledge about and actions toward improving EDI in cultural settings, and specifically within cultural organizations. This dialogue is intended to provide cultural organizations with tools and to offer researchers a better understanding of experiences in the field. This compendium of experiences and research results will contribute to the development of new knowledge rooted in the practice of the target audiences.

All conferences will have simultaneous interpretation in English and French.
