OUR MISSION & VISION
DEIB Festival is committed to facilitate awareness and provide social justice opportunities for students through this series of events focusing on DEIB (diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging), leadership, collaboration, and community engagement.
Our DEIB Festival logo includes each letter of D.E.I.B.
The piano lid and alto clef of within the logo represent music and music sharing. The wing expresses our soaring hope for thriving arts and music education. The heart depicts our passion to support and share music with the community.
DEIB Festival is sponsored by the Mead Witter School of Music & UW-Madison Keyboard Area
In 2021, DEIB Festival was founded affiliated with UW-Madison MTNA Collegiate Chapter first. In order for the arts and music education to thrive, we need strong advocates who are willing to reach out to society and demonstrate the countless ways that music makes our lives more meaningful and worthwhile. DEIB Festival is committed to building a stronger link between the University and the community, while continuing to invest in our own development as musicians and teachers in order to model the highest artistic values and professional standards.
To those ends, we develop and put into action various pedagogical projects that bring together established professionals, UW students, and community members. We are always eager to find new ways of fostering holistic and innovative approaches to sharing music and music-making, and look forward to meeting you at one of our events.

Our organization would like to express our deepest appreciation to Prof. Jessica Johnson who brought better awareness of BIPOC, systematically & historically marginalized composers to the School of Music. She inspired our organization to make the DEIB Festival possible with her unwavering support and invaluable guidance.
Our organization would like to extend our sincere thanks to Tim Russell who helped us building a connection in 2021 between the School of Music and Dance Department. Without his support, our creative music and dance collaboration was not possible.
