Upcoming Affinity Group Meetings

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 every other week to support actively dismantling the systems of racial oppression in our field and beyond. Please see next week’s schedule below:

Monday, August 24 @ 4pm: White Affinity Group

Tuesday, August 25 @ 4pm: Black Affinity Group

Thursday, August 27 @ 2:30pm: Non-Black POC Affinity Group

We invite you to join us and encourage you to invite colleagues from your organization. Attendance at previous Affinity Group Meetings is not necessary. Advanced registration is required.

Why Affinity Groups?

“Affinity groups are an effective means through which people can reaffirm and explore aspects of their identity, as well as provide each other guidance and support for interacting with those who might not share, understand, or respect that identity,” (from RacialEquityTools.org).
