What consent and permission is needed to talk about systemic racism and address its impacts? This interactive, artist-led workshop will invite participants in looking back, to call on the past to move forward towards systems of racial equity.

The @CalArtsCouncil is offering free online public workshops intended to advance racial equity within the state’s arts and cultural field throughout the month of November. This three-part workshop series was co-created through a partnership with the Bay Area’s @PUSHDance and @DancingAroundRace as part of a pilot project supported by the Government Alliance on Race & Equity’s Innovation and Implementation Fund.
