“The concept of diversity only exists if there is an assumed neutral point from which ‘others’ are ‘diverse.’ Putting aside for now the straight, male, middle-classness of that ‘neutral’ space, its dominant aspect is whiteness. Constructed by a white establishment, the idea of ‘diversity’ is neo-liberal speak. It is the new corporatized version of multiculturalism… We don’t talk about racism, just ‘lack of diversity.’”
The day will explore the of race and gender through visual art, performance, literature, media, academia, politics, and entrepreneurship. As well as open conversations, there will be workshops and a DIY art exhibition/marketplace.
