  • Description:

    Nobody wants to be excluded. What obstacles keep art educators from achieving greater inclusiveness within their classrooms? What role might practitioners play concerning the elimination of systemic barriers in educational workspaces? This presentation and workshop focus on oppressive structures that exclude historically marginalized groups from meaningful participation and draws upon the theory of intersectionality to highlight the consequences of simultaneous, intersecting, marginalized social identities and experiences that have resulted in long-term unequal outcomes. Participate in this workshop and learn about tools that can support compassionate and courageous leadership focused on creating empowering spaces and breaking barriers that prevent progress toward achieving greater equity, diversity, inclusion, and access.
