Day of Learning 2019 Panel Discussion: Voices and Views from Inside/Outside

On January 15, 2019, the NYC Arts in Education Roundtable held it’s 4th Annual Day of Learning on Equity and Inclusion. Our theme this year was, “Creating Change from Within.” We invited the NYC Arts Education community to reflect on the ways we can each serve as agents of change within our organizations. What are the skills and new capacities we need to cultivate that will catalyze change within our communities? And who are the partners and collaborators who are vital to a more equitable distribution of power and resources across the field?

The panel discussion entitled “Voices and Views from Inside/Outside” was filmed for the Roundtable Archives.

Moderator: Philip A. Alexander, Arts in Education Director, Brooklyn Arts Council

Panelists: Courtney J. Boddie, Director of Education/School Engagement, The New Victory Theater; Lilaia Kairis, Director of Digital Services, The New 42nd Street; Richard Paz, Newark Museum’s DAMLI student intern & GlassRoots Teaching Artist; Sonnet Takahisa, Director, Strategic Education Initiatives, Newark Museum

Session Description: Administrators and Artists share experiences and strategies of promoting inclusion and equity from inside arts institutions, such as a performing arts company and a museum. This discussion will be rooted in real-world experience and will offer strategies participants can take with them.
