“Cultural policy in the arts sector consists of a set of statutes, policies and programs designed to support the development of artistic expression in Canada; it involves various departments and agencies.”

In this virtual conversation, Sarah Garton Stanley and Yvette Nolan talk about the tall shadow of the Massey Report, the shifting landscape, and how Canadian cultural policy is responding to the shift.Our hosts for this session will be Dr. Taiwo Afolabi and Dr. Deniz Unsal.

This event is brought to you by Equity in Cultural Policy, a community-based research project which explores the strategies employed by Indigenous, Black, and racialized cultural entrepreneurs in Western Canada to contribute to social good and community-building through their art. Including their perspectives in Canadian cultural policy is crucial.
