Can we create an economy of abundance through cultural practice? Participants will examine and discuss policies / practices that create space for collective abundance, in contrast with scenarios that perpetuate a false sense of scarcity. We will review the differences between intention, impact, and the consequences of such decisions.

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.
