Resources from Day of Learning on Equity & Inclusion (February 2020)

Reading Time:   5 Mins

On February 26, 2020, the NYC Arts in Education Roundtable hosted its annual Day of Learning on Equity and Inclusion. This year’s learning exchange focused on Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Pedagogy. Attendees explored how our roles as arts educators and administrators can support a student centered learning space that honors cultural identities and promotes social-emotional well-being in the classroom. To align and sustain our practice with the values of this pedagogy, we invited young people from our arts community to join us as presenters and co-learners for this special event.
