Amplifier Workshops

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.

Facilitated by Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation 

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.

About Race Forward

Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation brings systemic analysis and an innovative approach to complex race issues to help people take effective action towards racial equity. Race Forward’s mission is to catalyze movement building for racial justice. In partnership with communities, organizations and sectors, they build strategies to advance racial justice in policies, institutions and culture. Through their Narrative, Arts and Culture program, Race Forward provides racial equity services to arts organizations and arts philanthropy. Their flagship program, the Racial Equity in the Arts Innovation Lab, currently serves 58 arts and cultural organizations in New York City in deeply integrating racial equity practices.

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