Racial Equity, Arts and Culture
The Racial Equity, Arts and Culture Transdisciplinary Core functions as a collaborative network grounded in the principles of anti-racist cultural organizing and with a commitment to student-centered, community-led projects and ideas. The team’s work advances equitable access in opportunities (e.g., educational, financial, professional, etc.) among artists, cultural producers and organizations, and creates opportunities for the public to engage in arts and cultural activities that they have reason to value and/or that has potential to create social change
