New Music Edmonton Equity Statement:
In calling for and reviewing proposals, New Music Edmonton strives for equity and actively seeks out both demographic and stylistic diversity. We recognize that treating all people equally does not guarantee fairness, but can, instead, reinforce extant biases. As such, in contributing to a reliably equitable environment in our own presentations, the arts generally, and society as a whole, we endorse and have adopted policies whose outcomes promote fair distribution of opportunities.

We especially welcome proposals reflecting our equity goals and strongly encourage proposals from all underrepresented demographics. The resultant expansion of perspectives and experiences is necessary in creating a vibrant and inclusive arts community, which benefits us all.
