Charleston. Baltimore. Ferguson. How do we as arts leaders respond? Learn how your organization can directly address systemic racism and oppression, and foster greater equity, by applying a social justice lens to all areas of your work—professional development, fundraising, programming, board recruitment, hiring practices, and advocacy.
Through discussion and hands-on art-making, we’ll explore foundational concepts of social identity, privilege, and oppression; and discuss how these concepts influence decision-making. As a participant, you’ll gain practical tools and resources that you can adapt for your organization, including assessment rubrics, sample hiring questions, social justice leadership frameworks, and more. And you’ll have an opportunity to craft an equity action plan that meets your organization’s particular needs. For those who know a little or a lot about social justice pedagogy--this workshop is designed to meet you where you’re at and give you tools and strategies for building equity in ways that can make a real difference for your institution and the community you serve.
