A Year of Inclusivity
The Members of the Music and Theatre Arts Department at
UW-EC, including both faculty and students, have created a project entitled "A Year of Inclusivity," which will highlight the contributions of underrepresented composers and other musicians in the programming and curriculum of the department. The term "underrepresented" has been selected because of its inclusive nature which is open to interpretation, raising such issues as gender, racial or cultural background, and sexual orientation. Exclusionary historic traditions surrounding many types of music are still highly valued today creating a culture in which many individuals are marginalized.
