The Amplifier Workshops are a series of professional development workshops aimed at providing local arts and cultural administrators access to expertise on specific topics that may otherwise be difficult to access on an individual basis. These workshops give organizations the opportunity to directly engage with local and national arts experts on topics such as marketing, audience development, and fundraising.

Race Forward, a national racial justice organization, will facilitate a training for board and staff leadership of Dallas-based arts organizations who wish to sharpen their skills and strategies to address structural racism and advance racial and cultural equity at their respective organizations. Unlike “diversity trainings” which primarily focus on interpersonal relations and understanding, this training will emphasize how to challenge and change institutional racial inequities.

This workshop is by invitation only and is not open to the public. For more information, please contact Greg Oertel, Programs & Marketing Manager, at greg.oertel@taca-arts.org.

TACA’s Racial Equity in the Arts Training is made possible by a grant from the Texas Instruments Foundation.
