Opportunities for Teaching Artists
Deidra Montgomery: Cultural Equity
Wednesday September 21 (6-7:30pm)
Getting READI for Interactions
Getting READI for Interactions connects the Connecticut Office of the Arts’ READI (Relevance, Equity, Access, Diversity, Inclusion) framework to preparing for teaching engagements. In this session, participants will build skills in preparing to meet their students so they can be flexible in the moment. This session is designed to help teaching artists prepare for initial interactions with students, but it is relevant to anyone preparing to meet for the first time with others from cultural backgrounds that may be different than theirs.
Wednesday October 5 (6-7:30pm)
Understanding the Self in Pursuit of Cultural Equity
In Understanding the Self in Pursuit of Cultural Equity, participants will explore their own individual identities, cultural backgrounds, and preferences to better understand what cultural assumptions they might be bringing to their teaching engagements and how their identities might impact power dynamics. They will also leave with some strategies for how to confront their own biases.
Wednesday October 19 (6-7:30pm)
Maintaining Humility for Cultural Equity
Maintaining Humility for Cultural Equity focuses on how teaching artists can remain humble and present to promote cultural equity. Topics include: being adaptive, not making assumptions, keeping conversations relevant, and maintaining a growth mindset.
