Public Workshops to Address DEIA and Anti-Racism
M-AAA’s Engage Program is hosting two upcoming workshops, open to the public
Join us for these two public workshops, happening July 16 and August 13
Practicing Resilience: Activating Your Anti-Racism and DEAI Commitments
In recent months, organizations have made statements about their commitments to fight racism and build inclusion. Now, they are working to articulate how they will ensure alignment between their intentions and their impacts. During this 90-minute workshop, Dina Bailey will support participants as they reflect realistically on what they have been doing, what they want to be doing, and how they may move from theory to practice.
Messaging the Moment: How can institutions leverage their responses to current events to build engaged and supportive online audiences?
Presented Thursday August 13 from 1:00–2:30 p.m.
Arts and cultural practices are among the most impactful ways to effect social change, explore racial representation, reflect the diversity of a community’s identities, and provide an opportunity to engage diverse audiences in authentic and transformative learning experiences. While managing the unexpected during the current health, economic and racial pandemic, how do art organizations do this online, be authentic, and stay true to their mission? In this workshop, Jessika Davidson will lead arts leaders in learning how to build a progressive and anti-racist communications strategy that aligns with their mission and build authentic and effective messaging that affirms their commitment to anti-racist work, supports their online programming and stands in solidarity with the community they serve.
