Upcoming Sessions

Wednesday, July 8, 2:00pm EDT
Topic: Building Partnerships that Advance Justice
Gus Denhard, Executive Director of Early Music Seattle
Dr. Monica Rojas-Stewart, cultural anthropologist, community leader, activist, and performing artist

If you’re interested in partnering with local organizations in your work as an early musician or administrator, join us on July 8 to learn how to create authentic and meaningful relationships. Early Music Seattle has been engaging in community partnerships with the intention of advancing justice in the arts since 2015. This presentation will offer past collaborations and future plans as case studies in organizational partnering, pointing out successes, missteps, and the challenges of sharing privilege within contexts of institutional racism. Heavily featured will be Seattle’s 2018 performance of Jordi Savall’s Routes of Slavery, with an honest exploration of both the successes and lessons learned. Participants are encouraged to bring potential early music projects to the session for brainstorming and discussion.
