Northern recognizes that equity work is long and continuous and progress doesn’t happen in isolation. With that understanding, we work with community members to evolve our organizational practices toward equity. 

The Artist Council is a rotating  group of independent artists of color who work with Northern Lights to address and promote racial equity by identifying places within Northern Lights’ programming to advocate for procedural, pragmatic and philosophical changes that increase equity and participation at Northern Spark and other Northern Lights programming.
