Designing Equity – Part 1: Bringing Creativity into the Curriculum
January 16 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm$15 – $25
$25 for non-members
$15 for members
Presented by The Wells Collective, a diversity, equity, inclusion and justice firm with extensive experience with equity-centered training, auditing, and strategic planning. They work with schools and organizations to help them understand their power and position in society in order to manifest the necessary tools to serve as architects for liberation.
The firm is led by six Black women who are experienced diversity practitioners, researchers, leaders and educators. They structure impactful learning experiences that both invite and challenge participants to grow. Believing that equity and justice work has always been led by Black women, they also operate with the collective understanding that liberation comes from within.
This session, focused on grades K-12, helps to give key tools for ensuring arts and humanities education program offerings center equity. The Wells Collective will guide participants through the process of pairing their creative expression with an identity-focused curriculum to promote anti-racist learning spaces. This session challenges participants to go beyond diverse representation and move towards helping students challenge systems through their experiences with the arts.
DC Collaborative revised its memberships to provide a better experience for our community.
We encourage members of diverse backgrounds, professions, and interests, including (but not limited to) teaching artists, arts and humanities organizations, non-profits, for-profits, parents, educators, and government representatives to join.
