Diversity committee established by KAC and KHS
The Kentucky Arts Council and the Kentucky Historical Society have partnered to form a citizen-based diversity committee to ensure that programs, collections, staff, governing boards and audiences for both state agencies in the Commerce Cabinet reflect the diversity found within the commonwealth.
Although the Arts Council has had a diversity committee in the past, this new committee will serve the Kentucky Arts Council as well as the Kentucky Historical Society.
The committee met for the first time Aug. 16 at the Kentucky Historical Society, in conjunction with a convening of Kentucky arts organization representatives sponsored by the Kentucky Arts Council. Charon Battles, Program Director of Dance, Local Arts and Preserving Diverse Cultures for the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, presented a diversity workshop titled "Bringing Diverse Groups Together."
