Zoom Webinar: Wednesday, February 24, 2021 from 9AM-12PM
Nicole Brewer, creator of Conscientious Theatre Training and originator of the Anti-Racist Theatre
(A.R.T.) movement is teaching her unique approach which blends anti-racist theory,
social justice, collectivism, healing justice and theatre exercises for an embodied
understanding of racism and our agency to become anti-racist.
What to Expect
In this course Nicole offers artists and arts administrators tools to craft their own unique anti-racist ethos and delve into three core principles: harm reduction, harm prevention and relationship repair.
Participants will be guided through self-reflection exercises designed to strengthen their analysis of their position, power, privilege and begin to uproot their racist practices, policies, and protocols.
All who believe the way forward for an arts community that is anti-racist and anti-oppressive are welcome. We all have a role to play. The future of art will be nourished by you. Join us in doing the work to make sure is a liberated place for all.
