How can we move from DEI to community benefit?

How do our values translate into dollars spent? 

What can we do together that we can’t do apart?

October 5-12 ArtChangeUS is offering an open session of our virtual Beyond Solidarity: Cultural Community Benefits Training

Based on the ArtChangeUS Cultural Community Benefits Toolkit and facilitated by ArtChangeUS team members and independent creatives in the field, this training will guide participants through creative exercises aimed at unpacking complex equity issues, highlighting best practices that evolve beyond representation to create participatory equity and community benefit.

In five 2-hour sessions, participants will be guided through five key Principles. 

Working within an anti-racist context, the Beyond Solidarity training offers individuals and organizations creative, practical and meaningful strategies for building commitments to greater diversity, equitable stakeholder relationships, and structural change within their work. Each unit is anchored by a Memorandum of Understanding that becomes a tangible take-away and template for the organization increasing its accountability to its community and a map for institutional change.

You will come away from the training with:

  • A draft MOU that becomes part of your strategy for increasing equity inside your work or workplace!
  • Innovative resources & methodologies from national arts leaders and community activists
  • Uniquely developed engagement exercises & case-building data
  • An immersive experience based on the ArtChangeUS CCBP Toolkit
  • Enhanced skills for online learning

These open sessions are meant for individuals from organizations and independent participants. The cost of the workshop includes 11 hours of live, participatory training as well as a printed Cultural Community Benefits Principles Toolkit and immersive Training Workbook.

We also offer trainings tailored to your organization or project.
