Art as a Vehicle to Equity
July 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
As arts administrators and artists, we know in our ‘guts’ that art is powerful. In this workshop-style session, we will explore the ways art provides social provocation, reflection and inspiration as it relates to building a world that is equitable and just. Together, we’ll consider how arts organizations can actively lean into their strengths in advancing equity.
