About this Event

CHAT & CHEW - Monthly Zoom Gatherings

February to July 2021

4th Tuesday of each month, at 1:00-2:30 pm MST

Feb 23 / March 23 / April 27 / May 25 / June 22 / July 27

We want to invite you into an initiative that started up in Calgary in June 2020. A number of us see the importance of keeping equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (EDIA) concerns front and centre as we go through so much change everywhere including the arts sector.

Gatherings will be facilitated by the Cultural Instigators (CI)*. Once a month we will gather to collectively discuss topics of EDIA to get grassroots ideas and actions going.

Have a question or a proposal for future conversation topics and themes? Send an e-mail to

*Cultural Instigators (CI) is an initiative to support artists involved in building equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility in their work to organize and to create artistic projects that build the community’s capacity to confront social issues. CI is funded by but not led by Calgary Arts Development.
