Table for More: Race, Access, InClusion and Equity
NATS Boston, Boston Singers' Resource, and the Greater Boston Choral Consortium host a four-part Interactive Webinar Series, presented by G. Phillip Shoultz, III of VocalEssence (Minneapolis), intended to be a place for interactive discussion of discrimination and injustice in the vocal and choral community. As recent events have made clear, the issues surrounding accessibility, inclusion, and equity demand our attention and action now more than ever. The series takes place on Wednesdays in August from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. Participation is free and open to all, with advance registration.
Each session will feature a 45-minute keynote presentation, be followed by small break-out rooms for discussion, and conclude with room for guided conversation.
