TAAC was founded in 1985 to convene artists and cultural workers reflective of our pluralistic society and to inform and advocate for democratic cultural policies.  Open Dialogue 13 will focus on significant and pivotal people, places and policies impacting cultural democracy in America.  Through panels, keynote presentations, interviews, performances, interactive sessions, community experiences, and animated conversations, we will explore TAAC's four foundational pillars:

  • Equal participation in policymaking
  • Equitable funding for all cultural institutions
  • Elevation in multicultural leadership
  • Essential networks that impact cultural policy
