The National Guild for Community Arts Education is presenting the “Anti-Racism as Organizational Compass” series – an opportunity to listen to intimate conversations with six BIPOC-led arts organizations that center anti-racism in mission and practice. Each organization offers its unique perspective on holding true to their values while still navigating the non-profit industrial complex, and using the arts as a vehicle for advocating for liberation of their communities. These dialogues will be facilitated by Masharika Prejean Maddison of LightWell Coaching + Consulting. As transparent co-learners, the Guild will provide an opening framework for the interview series by sharing its own history, and, in closing, will reflect on its own anti-racism work and lessons learned.
After attending each dialogue on a Monday, you will be invited to a follow-up reflection session the following day facilitated by Toya Lillard of viBe Theater Experience. These reflection sessions will provide attendees an opportunity to process the conversation with other participants, share personal insights, and think through the changes you wish to activate within your own practice or organization.
The series is open to all. You can register for the series as a whole, or for individual dialogues.
Series takes place Mondays & Tuesdays October 19, 2020—February 22, 2021
