To what extent can we disrupt how white aesthetics and formalism are introduced in academia as the basis for learning? We will contrast how Eurocentrism is introduced to people of colors’ bodies versus how decentering whiteness holds power for discovery and new approaches to learning.

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.
