Arts Program Update

Since our last newsletter the world has continued to change in impactful ways.  Like many organizations, the call to action that started in Minneapolis and spread globally is an opportunity for us to re-evaluate our own processes, principles and biases.  Ensuring equity, inclusion, diversity, and more bluntly, zero-tolerance for racism is more than a responsibility, it's a necessary cornerstone to any successful program, or society for that matter.  At San Diego International Airport (SAN), diversity, equity and inclusion are taken very seriously. As SAN’s Arts Program, we started taking a closer look at these things during our two-year development process for the 2019 Arts Master Plan (DEI section, page 28).  Recognizing that implementing practices which consider all audiences for arts programming, all communities for opportunities, and all backgrounds for guidance, is an evolving practice, we know we're only just getting started.  And we know that part of the process is continuing to listen and learn.  As a program, we are fortunate to share a partnership with an expert Arts Advisory Committee who push us in this regard, and who are diverse not only in background but in the priceless experience that accompanies such vantage points. We commit to continuing to evolve, and to ensuring equality through the resources we have been granted.  We are now working on a checklist to utilize for all of our programs that, being more than just a mission statement, will allow us to track actions toward these goals.  It's not going to be a quick trip, it will be an expanding journey.  But we will get there through honest effort, open minds, and the solutionary effects of the arts.
Thank you,

Beck+Col Launch Virtual Residency  

The Arts Program’s Performing Arts Residency group, Beck+Col have transitioned their residency to the digital domain. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Spring 2020 residency artists have not been able to be onsite at the airport these last 2 months, but that hasn't stopped them from creating new virtual work. Based out of their home studio, they are filming a series of remote performances and vocal workshops. You can follow along with Beck+Col collaborators Micaela and Chloe to learn how to properly warm up your voice and try your best to sound like one of their lumpy playful monsters. It’s a great way to get started exploring your operatic voice!
