Call for Proposals | Arts Equity Summit - March 2019

Art Connect International, and our Youth United Artists, are curating a coalition of community partners, sponsors, speakers and artists for the inaugural Arts Equity Summit in March 2019. We’re glad that you’ve chosen to apply and we’re excited to build with you.

The Call for Proposals will close on 1/2/19 at 11:59pm. We'll be in touch to confirm we received your application, and the Youth United Artists will send a selection notice by the end of January 2019.

We encourage collaboration, teams are welcome to apply together. That said, we also encourage one "lead" presenter submit the application for the team (multiple applications are unnecessary).

If you would like to submit multiple proposals, you are welcome to do so. Please note that the application must be finished in one sitting, you cannot save your work as you go.

For the Arts Equity Summit we are accepting proposals in four formats:

1) Panel Discussions (60mins)
2) Workshops (90mins)
3) Round Table Discussions (60mins)
4) Town Hall Discussions (30mins)

Panel Discussions: panels can engage between 3-6 speakers and a moderator. Panels should focus on a particular unifying theme, experience and/or expertise.

Workshops: workshops are used to engage with questions, and art, surrounding questions of equity. Workshops are expected to be hands-on and multi-modal (many different forms of presentation) and should be thought of as a "learning tank" around a particular topic area.

Round Table Discussions: round tables are set up with up to ten other presenters, where attendees will rotate to a new table every 15minutes, allowing them to visit four tables over the duration of a session.

Town Hall Discussions: this innovative format is used to raise questions around equity with the support of facilitated guided discovery. It's an opportunity for those in the town hall to discuss difficult issues collectively, while also sharing joy, and looking towards learning for equity.
