Appropriation with Studio ATAO Webinar

June 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Conversations About Appropriation is an ongoing series of panel discussions hosted by Studio ATAO and General Assembly. We will be exploring the nuances of cultural appropriation in various industries, from food & beverage to music, wellness, and beauty.

Our working definition of cultural appropriation is:

The adoption of elements of one culture by another, especially in cases where a dominant culture exploits aspects of a minority culture outside of its original cultural context and/or at the expense of the original culture for personal gain.

In this session, we will focus specifically on the beverage industry, dissecting examples of appropriation, what we can learn from them, and how we can move towards a more equitable future.
