National Guild for Community Arts Education Highlight:

 

Excerpted from GuildNotes, a quarterly newsletter from the National Guild for Community Arts Education, is an article from Renée Watson, former associate director of professional development for DreamYard Project in the Bronx. In Beginning the Journey Toward Social Justice Watson discusses ways in which systemic oppression can manifest within our institutions and why a focus on organizational change is critical to achieving social justice more broadly.

At the Conference for Community Arts Education, Renée, along with Ama Codjoe (DreamYard Art Center), will take a deep-dive into this vital topic during their preconference, Social Justice Beyond the Classroom: Moving Toward Equity and Organizational Change.
