Calls are now open! #AES2020


Arts Connect International (ACI) is curating a coalition of community partners, sponsors, speakers and artists for the second Arts Equity Summit in April 2020. We are ecstatic to continue the beautiful work we started last year as we embark on our second Arts Equity Summit. We encourage everyone to apply by the Nov. 30th deadline. Click HERE to apply.

Currently, we have calls open for:

Proposals: Panels, workshops, town hall discussions, keynotes and fireside chats 

Art: Visual, performance and multimedia

Partnership: Community and Sponsoring partners (including in-kind donations)


This year we are introducing three strands to help guide the conversations: 

1)    Structures for Success: Building Equity in Your Organization

Conversations surrounding visions of equitable organizations and the steps to take to get us there.

2)     Innovative Creatives: Building New Systems

Conversations for those interested in or currently building equity in new ways, including new approaches and methods, systems, or structures.

3)    Celebrating Resistance: Centering Community

Conversations celebrating the moves toward equity that are already happening in communities, organizations and institutions with the aim of empowering others to continue or start similar work.


We would love to partner with you to cultivate critical conversations in order to build equitable joyful and creative communities.
