Holding Space, Giving Voice, and Uplifting Black Voices:
Exploring Cultural Erasure on Stage, in Community and Creation

In this fascinating panel join Minnesota Opera’s Director of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Rocky Jones, Vancouver’s Queen of Soul Dawn Pemberton, and Toronto-based queer interdisciplinary artist Morgan-Paige Melbourne for a lively and provocative discussion about the state of Black Opera and performance in North America and the way forward to end cultural, urban erasures in communities of colour.

Moderated by Debi Wong (re:Naissance) and Ashley Daniel Foot (Vancouver Opera)
