Jewish Resilience & The Arts


Friday, June 7,
12:00 PM to 1:00 PM





The dramatic rise in antisemitism is affecting us all, and it’s having an impact on arts and culture. To combat this threat, we want to build a path forward with unity and advocacy.


Join us for a one-hour webinar tackling antisemitism through an arts and culture lens. This webinar is open to artists, patrons of the arts, cultural professionals, students in the arts, fellow arts advocates, and all those interested in supporting the arts through these challenging times. Together with a UJA advocacy professional, the group will begin to explore ways to deal effectively with current issues in the arts community. Ontario Arts Council CEO Michael Murray will discuss the OAC’s work in addressing antisemitism in the arts.


Friday, June 7, 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM



Please register today for this important and timely webinar.
