DEIA Open Space for White Executive Directors

Calling in all White Executive Directors in arts education! Your ED colleagues are coming together again in a virtual open space to share out learnings, challenges, and questions around advancing the key priorities of the List of Demands and other anti-racism work in their organizations. Whether your organization is wondering where to start or has done a lot of anti-racism work so far, this space is for all White Executive Directors committed to collective action, resource-sharing, and honest accountability.

Affinity Group Series

On Monday, June 1, 2020, the NYC Arts in Education Roundtable hosted an informal Arts Education community meeting in response to the racial violence against Black individuals and communities in our country.
