The Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture has developed a new series of workshops for arts leaders and staff of nonprofit arts organizations in our region for 2022. Creating Diversity Enriched Environments is designed to identify ways to diversify audiences, increase organizational competencies, and assess EDI issues within nonprofit arts organizations.

As part of the workshop, Margie Reese, Senior Program Director at The Alliance, has developed a diversity questionnaire for those who participate. The Alliance asks that you be as honest as possible as this survey is anonymous.
