Racial Justice Within the Arts
A lecture of this nature comes at a timely moment in our country's history. The knowledge and passion that Mr. Nase brings with this conversation will provide insight and understanding on a key issue to our Berry students that our country is, unfortunately, still experiencing; racial injustice not only in our communities but our art communities as well. This lecture will be eye-opening and will provide the students with an opportunity in understanding radical empathy and how to practice this in their day-to-day life.
The lecture will be conducted over ZOOM as the lecturer is based in New York City. The lecture will be structured as follows: -Video introduction -Discussion on aggressions, both micro and macro - Practicing radical empathy -Q&A A video will be shown detailing multiple moments of racism in a threat alive work setting. The speaker will give a moment to gauge people's feelings and thoughts after viewing them.
They will then discuss and breakdown micro/macro aggressions and how those play out in artistic settings. The speaker will then speak about radical empathy and it’s power in creating safe and equitable spaces for BIPOC and then open the floor for questions.
