Curating for Diversity: Works, Spaces and People

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As evidenced by the past year’s events, diversity is one of the most urgent concerns for our community, and the one remaining frontier that we must collectively tackle to have real and lasting impact. The indie community, while inviting and welcoming to diverse voices, still has a long way to go in terms of representation. This talk, given by one of IndieCade’s founders, will talk about a variety of principles and techniques for amplifying diversity through thoughtful curation of works, spaces, and people. Many of these techniques are less-obvious “second order” strategies which, rather than focusing directly on a diverse group, embrace the communities and practices to which these groups already belong. These initiatives also serve to broaden new horizons for existing community members, creating benefit for all. For organizers of festivals, conferences, exhibition venues, co-working spaces, and educational programs, this talk will present concrete and actionable methods that can be used to diversify your community.
