Rebuild, Reconcile, Reimagine: Releasing a List of Demands for Centering Black Women’s Leadership in Arts Education

Black women stand at the intersection of two groups that suffer from severe underrepresentation in roles of leadership and senior leadership in the arts and culture community. In response to this disparity, a team of dedicated individuals from the NYCAIER Black Affinity Group have crafted a List of Demands for Centering Black Women’s Leadership in Arts Education.

Please join the NYC Arts in Education Roundtable on Tuesday, February 16th as we kick off a campaign centered on this List of Demands, featuring a moderated panel discussion between Black women who are veterans in the field of arts education. Attendees will hear from panelists as they discuss critical issues that the List of Demands seeks to address, and will learn how they can be a part of the movement.

Panelists include:
  • Stephanie Hughley, Independent Senior Arts Consultant
  • Toya Lillard, Executive Director, viBe Theater Experience
  • Eileen Morris, Artistic Director, The Ensemble Theatre (Houston)
  • Donna Walker-Kuhne, President, Walker Communications Group
  • Moderated by Amanda Gardner, Writer, Performer, & viBeCompany Member

This event is free and open to all.

NYCAIER In Solidarity: All Affinity Groups Meeting

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.

The week of June 15 we continued the work by hosting individual affinity group meetings throughout the week. We have continued hosting regular affinity group spaces to support actively dismantling the systems of racial oppression in our field and beyond.

Please join the NYC Arts in Education Roundtable for the NYCAIER In Solidarity: All Affinity Groups Meeting. This meeting is a chance for our affinity group spaces to reconnect, share progress, and center accountability as they move forward.

**Previous attendance at an Affinity Group meeting is not required. This event is free and open to all.
