CHROMA is an Erie-based regional network focused on building both individual and organizational capacity by providing broader opportunities for diversity, equity, and inclusion within the area’s cultural and creative industries.

This network is intended for any person of color living in Northwestern Pennsylvania that is involved in the conception, production, distribution, promotion, interpretation, or conservation of creativity and culture. Through this network, Erie Arts & Culture aims to connect and empower artists, curators, critics, producers, venue owners, promoters, and archivists who value culture and creativity in all its forms.

Erie Arts & Culture would like to produce reliable data related to the number, variety, and diversity of cultural and creative professionals in the region. Collecting such information will allow us, and others in our sector, to establish benchmark goals for diversity, equity, and inclusion.

CHROMA Meet Up v3

Attention Non-CHROMA Members:

CHROMA hosts quarterly open house meetings that are open to the public. We welcome non-members of the guild to attend the open house meetings and participate in conversations related to diversity, equity, and inclusion within the cultural and creative sectors. 

We ask that all cultural and creative professionals of color residing in Northwestern Pennsylvania who are interested in CHROMA complete the PRO Network census survey, even if they previously enrolled in past registry and communication initiatives implemented by the Erie Arts & Culture.
