Sarah Garton Stanley and Yvette Nolan discuss Canadian cultural policy, how we got here and how we move forward. Hosted by Taiwo Afolabi and Deniz Ünsal. In this virtual conversation, Yvette Nolan and Sarah Garton Stanley discussed the tall shadow of the Massey Report, the shifting landscape and how Canadian cultural policy is responding to the shift. They recount the history of the Massey Report and the need for policy to reflect the current socio-cultural, political, and economic milieu.
On April 14th 2023, Taiwo Afolabi and Deniz Unsal facilitated a panel discussion titled “Exploring an Equitable Cultural Policy” at the Belfry Theatre in Victoria, BC. Along with self-employed artists from Indigenous, Black and racialised communities, we discussed how they experience cultural policies at local and urban levels in their art practice and community engagement.
Do you identify as a Black, Indigenous or racialized self-employed artist? Do you find the existing cultural policies in Canada supportive of your art and community partnerships?
Join us for a panel discussion with arts practitioners, managers, and policy makers.
