This session is designed to support leaders in building the skills necessary to engage board members in an organization’s racial equity efforts. Participants will have time to practice communication techniques among peers to receive buy-in from individuals who are often resistant to addressing race and racism.
The TACA Perforum: Amplifier Workshops are a curated series of capacity-building arts workshops for arts leaders in North Texas. Participation in TACA’s Amplifier Workshops is free for current TACA Grant Recipients and TRG Arts Community Network members.
2018 Topic: Meeting Community Needs
Monday, October 29, 2018
Nasher Sculpture Center
Moderated by Zannie Giraud Voss, Southern Methodist University
TACA Perforum is an annual, community-wide arts symposium designed to advance a collective vision for what a thriving arts and cultural community can look like for Dallas and North Texas. Through a conversation facilitated by expert panelists and roundtable discussions, we seek an infusion of ideas to consider debate, explore, and possibly adapt and develop for implementation locally.
Since 2009, TACA Perforum has served as a forum to both identify and address needs in the North Texas arts community. The New Works Fund(2012), the North Texas Cultural Co-op (2013), the Artist Residency Fund (2015) and the TACA Perforum: Amplifier Workshops (2015) are programs that have been launched by TACA to meet needs identified through Perforum.
