How might we use our individual experiences, capacity for empathy, and understanding of institutions and the arts to talk openly about race?
In this five-part series, educators from around the region come together to explore, reflect, and practice building spaces of racial justice and equity in both the classroom and community.
Building on all that we have learned, shared, and experienced together in the first three sessions of the series, we will explore how to incorporate the practices of interrogation into our classrooms and educational spaces. Newcomers are welcome.
We will start promptly at 5:05 p.m., so please account for rush-hour traffic in Oakland. Meet in Carnegie Museum of Art’s Board Room.
The series is free and open to the public, though registration is required. Dinner will be provided with a vegetarian option. Please help reduce food waste by letting us know if you need to cancel your registration.
Not quite sure what to expect? We’re here to help! Email Ani with any questions or concerns.
