About the Workshop:
During our time together we will deepen our understanding around how systemic racism operates and how it is supported. From there we will explore skills for dismantling racism that utilize our mind, body, spirit and heart. The focus of the session will be on awareness, skill and practice for you as individuals, with some time to explore how this work relates to your art and the institutions you interact with. The sessions will include reflection and interactive activities.
