The Magazine Association of BC and the Association of Book Publishers of BC are committed to promoting greater inclusivity, diversity, accountability and accessibility in publishing, and fostering dialogue around these complexities inherent in trying to create positive change in these areas.
These one-day workshops, which will be held in Vancouver and Victoria, are intended to provide BC publishing professionals with an opportunity to inform themselves about different aspects of inclusivity, accountability, and respect in the workplace. The format will consist of four topics covered by industry experts, with opportunities for participant questions and discussion. Background reading material will be circulated prior to the workshops.
Join Chelene Knight and Jónína Kirton as they address cultural appropriation, Indigenization, and decolonization as it relates to publishing. They will examine how publishing professionals can become more aware of their own cultural biases and privileges, particularly when working with BIPOC and LGBTQ2SIA+ creators, creators from other underrepresented groups, and with culturally sensitive content.
This event is $20. Registration is required.
