Anti-Oppression and Anti-Racism Workshop


This workshop for artists explores the language, theories and practices of anti-oppression in depth. Institutional, community based and organizational strategies for building equity and unlearning oppression are central to the content and objectives of the workshop. Creative, technical and collaborative models for building equity and liberation will be explored. Group activities, case studies and discussion are critical tools to apply the learnings of this workshop.

Participants will have access to a plethora of digital and print resources to continue their learning journey beyond the scope of the session.
