Making Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Real in Art Education Practices
Wednesday, October 3, 2018 | 7-8 pm ET
FREE for NAEA Members; $49 for non-members

Unsure how to start a conversation about race in your art room? Join Patty Bode in this timely webinar to investigate the idea that "racism is not everybody's fault, but it is everybody's responsibility." Explore ways in which art educators can talk about race and racism in the preK-12 art room and art education college classroom to help advance our NAEA goals for equity, diversity, and inclusion. Strategies will include dialogue about contemporary art and studio practices that help unmute the discourse on race and racism.
