Creative Connections: Where Confidence Thrives

Art in Action is excited to create a new conversation series that features speakers who advocate for arts education as a core subject in youth education. Conversations will highlight how the arts can begin a dialogue on current issues in our country.

June 2022 Speaker Event – Healing Through The Arts

  • Tickets: $35 (No tickets will be sold at the door, pre-registration only)
  • Registration: Opens May 25, 2022

The twin pandemics – COVID and the systemic issue of racial inequality – have brought mental health into the open and forefront of long-term issues facing society. Trauma is especially apparent in children of all ages, racial, cultural, gender, and socioeconomic backgrounds and shows to have negative implications on future generations. At this event, child development and education specialists discuss these twin pandemics, how they impact children, and how the arts help them deal with these dual traumas.

Funds from this event will launch Art in Action’s DEI Initiative Fund.  This fund will help develop two new visual art education programs, Emerging Artist Series (EAS) and LatinX lessons. The programs’ curricula focus on contemporary artists of color and marginalized identities whose stories and artwork bring another layer of historical, cultural, societal, and current perspective empowerment and understanding to students.

COVID Policy: In accordance with CZI’s COVID policy, guests must show evidence of vaccination or a negative COVID test was executed 72 hours before the event date of June 22nd. For more details: CZI COVID Policy, click here.
