Projects of Outreach and Access

Working with partners, reducing exclusion, and fostering inclusive arts opportunities

MAAE's Committee to address issues of Racism, Inclusion Diversity and Equity (RIDE) sponsors projects to help address systemic racism and bias - and works to promote positive change.

A series of listening sessions with a purpose of uncovering the reasons why there are so few participants of color involved in professional development conferences or student performance/exhibition opportunities.

By listening to our colleagues in the field, we hope to become more informed and help devise next steps.

Space for each listening session is limited. To register contact:

The first project of self-study and outreach was completed in August-October, 2020 with LISTENING SESSIONS to uncover areas of bias or systemic racism in our work within professional development conferences and students of color involvement in honors ensembles. more info here

Additional outreach of the report from these listening sessions are planned.
