VISION & VALUES
We seek to support and sustain a transformation in the Mohkinstsis/Calgary music community,
dedicated to collaborating, mentoring and advocating
for musicians and artists seeking to perform, create and study
with gender justice and racial justice
as guiding principles, through an
intersectional lens of anti-oppression.
We commit to cultivating creative artistic practise,
within a supportive and egalitarian setting.
We seek to engage ourselves and others in the pursuit of
Calgary Without Patriarchy
recognizing the role that composition
can play in the larger struggle for social justice.
