Presentations from Facing Race 2014
Race Peace is a dialogue and performance project that creates communities of anti-racist practice in which participants can celebrate common bonds, explore their differences and lay the civic foundation to pursue solutions to the issues that impact their communities. This workshop will create a space in which people from diverse backgrounds can confront racism using the unique ability of art to embrace complexity and contradiction. Our color line process helps participants to develop a shared understanding of the complexities of racism, both individual and institutional, and to envision themselves as agents of change.Speakers: Carlton Turner, Hannah Pepper-Cunningham, Melisa Cardona, Joanna Russo
