From OC’s National Conference 2019: 

“I firmly believe that the arts are the only pure vehicle we have in today’s society that cross cultural and ethnic barriers and allow people to transcend their differences.” – Donna Walker-Kuhne

Donna Walker-Kuhne, of Walker International Communications Group and New Jersey Performing Arts Centre (NJPAC), delivers this keynote presentation on welcoming diverse audiences to arts spaces. She discusses what community and diversity mean in different contexts; how the arts connect us across differences; and key tactics for inviting, retaining, and truly making space for arts audiences that “look like the subway station.”
