Begin your day with: A Call to Action!
Our Keynote Speaker, writer/ performer/ educator Renée Watson, shared insights from her experience as an artist leading arts equity work.
Then: Strategies for Action!
Participants attended their choice of two workshops:
Workshop 1: JACK Be Nimble: Choosing Collaborative Governance for Organizational Agility and Radical Process
Workshop 2: Art Power: Owning Our Capacity to Disrupt Racism
End your day with: Community!
The goal of this Plenary Session was to lay the groundwork for a dynamic networking hour in which thoughts and ideas can begin to transform into action plans, concrete commitments and budding or continuing professional relationships.
Attendees were invited to come together to engage in extensive dialogue and interactive exercises that address the issues that matter most to them. Participants then self-selected specific activity stations geared towards “activating equity” collaboratively – to put their hearts, bodies and minds together in service of this endeavor. Facilitated by Wilfredo Hernandez.
Then, networking and free libations!
