The Art of Wellness

The Art of Wellness discussion is designed to assist the Artpreneur with taking care of themselves so that they can share their art with the world. An Artpreneur is passionate, driven, and often struggling financially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. The constant grind of creation, promotion, and worrying about the inevitable criticism fuels burnout, depression, anxiety, and sleepless nights. It is time to get off the roller coaster of un-wellness because pursuing your art does not have to make you unhappy or unwell. The prescription is radical self-care.

Centering Black Women: A List of Demands
We are a coalition of Black cultural workers, arts educators and administrators called together through Affinity Groups held by The New York City Arts in Education Roundtable that all know, support, and advocate for Black women teaching artists, administrators and executives in this field.

We demand that there be more intentionality behind power and cultural shifts in the arts, and that cultural organizations rethink their infrastructure, mission, and core values, and the degree to which they center and support Black women’s leadership.

We insist that predominantly white-led cultural institutions (PWIs) and mid-to larger-sized cultural institutions that may be BIPOC-led invest in Black women: their expertise, their cultural and intellectual capital, and improvements to their quality of life. Investments should include, but not be limited to, recruitment, fair compensation, mental health care, mentorship, career advancement, professional development, and equal opportunities.

Face2Face 2021 WORKSHOP: Community Grief Ritual with Bernadette Pleasant - *Gallery View - ASL INT*

April 12, 2021
In our modern world, grief, death and loss are considered taboo topics; they are not to be discussed or expressed. Not only that, but if acknowledged, grief is considered a private matter, only to be experienced alone. But when we don’t grieve, we end up living numbed-out, half-lived versions of our lives. And when we only grieve alone, we miss out on the support and healing available to us when we grieve in community. Come dressed to move in this workshop centered on healing and release.

Summer School 2020: Protest Poetry Art Making & Activism in Online Spaces

Our students are a part of one of the most active and outspoken generations of our time, but many of them are unable to participate in protests on the street. As educators, it is important that we empower our students to speak out and make their voices heard. One way we can help our students participate in protests without endangering them is through their art-making. In this experiential workshop led by Community-Word Project Teaching Artists Katie Rainey and Javan Howard, participants will explore activism through creative writing and how they can translate that work to their classrooms and empower their students to take action.

Presented by Community Word Project's Katie Rainey (Teaching Artist & Director of the Teaching Artist Project) and Jay Howard (Teaching Artist Project Facilitator & Teaching Artist).

Recorded live on August 6, 2020.
