Event description
How the language we use to share maker knowledge interacts with race.

About this Event

When it’s easy to lean into jargon as a way to communicate intelligence and experience, one can quickly conflate the words we use with who belongs and who doesn’t. And when it comes to talking about issues of race and gender, there is often a fear of saying the wrong thing. This workshop will explore how to be inclusive with Maker speak, as well as how to avoid the pitfalls of inaction by the fear of talking about race imperfectly.

About Our Facilitator

Nexus was born and raised in the traditional territory of the Pamunkey and the Piscataway, part of which many of us now call Washington, DC. He is Black and Filipino-American and a queer cisgender man, who is ethically non-monogamous. Nexus is currently a member of the Community Arts Team for Any Given Child DC, on the board of Dance Place , on the Grants Committee for the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County, as well as an Ambassador for Woolly Mammoth. Nexus also serves as one of five Regional Contacts for the DC Burning Man community. And it is with over a decade and a half of working in the arts and advocacy, as well as serving in a variety of volunteer leadership positions, he brings his extensive experience regarding inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA) to his anti-racism work.
