What does it mean to do anti-oppression work? How do we decolonize oppressive structures to promote racial equity, liberation and peace? This practical workshop for artists, presenters, and the curious provides anti-oppression tools and strategies, focusing on the work and experiences of artists and arts organizers of color. Join us in this brave space for peer-to-peer conversations.
