The Arts and Culture Roundtables return for a three-part series this June.
In this three-part series, we will engage a dynamic dialogue around ways to foster equitable, inclusive, and respectful cross-cultural collaboration within our community. Following the theme Building Bridges, we seek to deepen our understanding of the structural racism that affects us all, to lessen the division, and begin to flourish in the strength of our diversity.
The full series will be presented as a hybrid event to support accessibility across our county. Locations and ways to attend include: in-person in Eugene, watch parties in Florence, or virtually over Zoom
