Update: December 31, 2020

These sessions have been rescheduled since originally announced. Please note the new dates below.

Do you identify as a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, or People of Color) teaching artist or arts educator in Arizona? Join us as we build a community of BIPOC artists across the state who work and teach in a variety of art forms and settings. Gain an intimate and intentional net of support for the work ahead in a BIPOC-centered teaching and learning arts space.  

This winter, the Arizona Commission on the Arts will present 4 webinars for BIPOC teaching artists interested in exchanging best practices. Teaching artist Sharah Nieto will facilitate four sessions specific to different age groups and disciplines. This is a great opportunity to connect with peers in your area of expertise, ask questions, share ideas and build community. Feel free to join any session/s that best suit/s your practice!

This space is for Arizona state teaching artists, school-based arts specialists, youth arts providers, and classroom teachers who self-identify as BIPOC. We welcome all intersectional BIPOC identities, including (but not limited to) African, Arab, Asian, Caribbean, Latinx, Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, mixed race, and white-passing folks who identify as BIPOC and are prepared to honor and explore the nuances of being white-passing in this context.
