ASC Sponsored Workshops & Training

SELF to SYSTEMS Race Equity Workshop

Dates: Friday, January 10, Friday, January 31 and Friday, February 14, 2020, 9 a.m. – noon.
Location: Charlotte Ballet (701 N. Tryon St., Charlotte, NC 28202).
Registration Deadline: Thursday, January 2, 2020.
Cost: $45.
Audience: Cultural nonprofits and creative individuals.

ASC is accepting registrations for the second cohort of SELF to SYSTEMS. This workshop series is intended to support people seeking to get involved, or deepen their efforts, in the important work of cultural equity. In addition to people working within cultural organizations, this is open to individual artists, historians and scientists working in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community.

The purpose of this series is to build capacity for learning about racial equity within the context of arts and culture. Bringing awareness to structural racism, our patterns, ways of being, and language, we will seek to bring awareness to and inquire how our biases affect how we listen and how we communicate with others. When we are self-aware and have tools to communicate through difficult conversations, we can teach and lead more effectively. The awareness of one’s pattern and way of being along with a brave space for learning promotes positive paradigm and behavioral shifts. This series will only serve to scratch the surface of awareness and to provide participants with a framework to dialogue with increased confidence about race, racism and white supremacy.

Registrants must commit to attending all three sessions.
