ACI is committed to

bringing together authentically diverse intergenerational communities within the arts and culture sector, catalyzing movements towards equity. The three-day summit and arts-integrated experience examines issues of equity both in, and through, the arts.

Using an inductive process, ACI curates the convening through a call for proposals which invites various conversation formats and threads, creating opportunities for multi-modal artists and performers to show their work, and coalition building through inviting community partners and funding partners to co-create with us.
