People of color have had to surmount institutionalized racism to make their way in art ecosystems as artists, administrators, and teachers. Now, leaders of historically white-led institutions are turning to them for advice, seeking “diversity of representation.” But elevating these voices for a moment is not the same as dismantling racist structures. How do we make true change, create racially equitable spaces, empower new generations into ownership of public institutions, and build lasting platforms to sustain equitable education, community engagement and expression?
As we rebuild post-pandemic, what new systems will need to support contemporary craft as a truly equitable space? What effective models can we amplify and envision to build access and success for those who have been historically excluded from conversations and institutions of craft and design?
Join the conversation with Anthony Romero (SMFA Tufts University), Jabari Peddie (The Teachers’ Lounge), Polly Carpenter (Boston Society for Architecture), Steph Foster (University of the Arts), and Isaac Madera-Cepeda (Boston Collegiate Charter School), moderated by Alison Croney Moses (Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts).
Hosted by the Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts and generously supported by Haystack Mountain School of Crafts.
