Engaging Diverse Communities
February 7, 2013
7pm - 9PM
SFU Woodwards - World Arts Centre, Room 255
149 W. Hastings Street
Efforts to enact social change are always political, but how do structures affect these efforts? Funding streams and the City of Vancouver's Advisory Committees create opportunties for diverse communities to develop programming. At the same time, they reproduce divisions within a diverse population. Panellists will discuss the successes and challenges of enacting social change "from within" and point to strategies for engaging communities in ways that reflect their full diversity.
