Unpacking Equality in Arts and Culture: A Spiral Q Conversation with the Leeway Foundation, Michael Norris, and the Philadelphia Folklore Project

Three of this year’s Spiral Q Honorees will have an open conversation about improving equality in the arts and what it means to broaden access to resources for both the artist and audience. Each honoree will share what they’ve done to even the playing field and support historically marginalized communities. This is a space to dream, name your vision, and imagine a more culturally inclusive landscape.

Thursday, April 10 | 6:00PM
at The Leeway Foundation
1315 Walnut Street, Suite 832

New to the Q! Upcoming Salons will Provide Space for Community Dialogue

Spiral Q salons will provide a space for everyone in the community to make an inqueery and hold conversations on what is important to each of us. Each salon will highlight the work of Q awardees past and present as well as other local activators.

Part gathering, part discussion, salons are a way for us to gather in a forum where everyone’s voice can be heard. We hope you’ll join us and help make the salons a series of meaningful events. This spring we will be holding salons on April 10th, May 8th, and June 12th. More details on guests and locations to come.
