OPEN DIALOGUE 2010 IS A UNIQUE SPACE TO DISCUSS ISSUES, CHALLENGES, SUCCESSES AND PERSPECTIVES OF ARTS ORGANIZATIONS AND ARTISTS IN COMMUNITIES OF COLOR. 

The Association of American Cultures (TAAC) invites leaders both established and emerging to Open Dialogue 2010 to formulate action-agendas promoting equity in cultural policy, funding and leadership in the 21st Century.

At Open Dialogue 2010 participants will discuss policies and programs which individuals, organizations, foundations, and policy makers are encouraged to strategize and organize around in order to further advance cultural democracy and cultural equity platforms AND programs in today's new era of change. Recognizing some quantitative progress in equity and diversity issues over the last three to four decades, it is most urgent at this historic time of change to evaluate and set forth action-agendas around TAAC's foundational pillars for real, substantive, long-term change.

TAAC convenes artists and cultural workers that are reflective of our pluralistic society to inform and advocate for democratic cultural policy.

Saturday's Closing Keynote Address by acclaimed producer, director & actor Kenny Leon
