Rural Arts Anti-Racism Meet-Up
Feedback from the initial Rural Arts Activism & Anti-Racism Meet-Up in June indicated an overwhelming desire to continue holding space for rural arts and cultural workers to connect and share resources for anti-racism, equity, and justice work in ways that are meaningful and in support of the work of Black, brown, immigrant and Indigenous leaders. Based on the June 5th meet-up highlighting the work and voices of BIPOC artists Benya Kraus, Nevada Littlewolf, Holly Doll, Cassie Williams, Sharon Mansur, Nancy XiaoRong Valentine, and Mai'a Williams, our second Meet-Up will include facilitated, small group deep-dives into the ideas shared by the panelists at our first gathering in order to develop personal and community commitments, and to identify ways to support and hold each other accountable in building equity in rural communities. Breakouts will include a BIPOC only space and the option to gather by region.
Since this meeting will primarily consist of small breakout groups, it will not be possible to record. Notes will be taken and a summary will be sent to participants following the event, or by request.
