“Rootwork | Grounding Community Arts Education Beyond the Pandemic” is an online learning series about how to create programming informed by, and supportive of, the many, varied lived experiences of our communities in the unique context of this moment.
Nationwide throughout the pandemic, community arts education organizations have been working iteratively to reconfigure programming for their new realities—not least of which includes addressing the severe social inequities that COVID-19 has so clearly revealed. In April, the National Guild held several series in initial response to the pandemic through which they, along with many arts education practitioners, co-learned about how organizations have adapted their programming most responsively when centering the communities whom have been historically marginalized by racist, colonialist, ableist, and ageist systems. These communities’ resilience offers us all tremendous leadership.
Designed specifically for cultural workers in community arts education, this series will help you navigate the “new normal” and co-create programming by / with / for your communities towards a brighter future.
This series takes place December 2, 2020 — February 24, 2021. You can register for the series as a whole, or for individual sessions.
