Workshops & Webinars

Arts Huddles are back!

There’s more to look forward to now, but we still have plenty of uncertainty left to navigate. Until we can spend time meeting face to face, we will continue to hold virtual space for connecting, sharing and finding resources.
Virtual presenter skill share
Have you become an armchair expert in virtual programming? Do you feel yourself at a loss for how to host an online meeting or engagement?

This has been a common experience for many of us, so after a year, let’s share what we’ve learned.

CMAB Staff will offer some of what we have learned in our year-long journey of virtual-only programs.
And we’d like to hear from you! Share what you know or ask about what you don’t.

We will consider our time informal skill sharing and social time. We’d love to see you and hear about how you’re doing.

Thursdays –  May 6, June 3, July 1, August 5, September 2 @ 4:00-5:30 pm

Race and the Arts

Race And the Arts

Viewing Art through a Racial Justice Lens- Reflective Protocols
We invite you to engage in some reflective processes as we look at the role the arts play in creating and upholding racialized narratives. Do we consider who is telling the story when we view a painting, or read a poem? What does an author’s intent or identity mean for a work of art?

We will share some tools for group analysis of works of art and look at how ideas about race and identity are shaped by the art that surrounds us.

Local poet, educator and racial justice activist, Hedy Tripp will join our conversation to offer her insight and expertise as we practice these tools for deep analysis and exploration.

Thursday, April 22 from 4-5:30 pm
ZOOM Meeting: Register in advance for this meeting: REGISTER HERE
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

This link will be the same for monthly meetings about Race and the Arts on the fourth Thursday of every month:  April 22nd, May 27th.
