WSW Alumnx Community Forum

June 30 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

WSW Alumnx Community Forum
Time: 7-8:30PM EST

We are committed to the ongoing work it will take to expose and dismantle white supremacy and a culture of whiteness in our office and in our studio. It is critical that Women’s Studio Workshop be a safe space for bold artistic expression. We are looking deeply at the hierarchies of power within print, paper, ceramics and book art practices, as well as artist residency programs, archives, and artist’s book publication.

We invite Women’s Studio Workshop alumnx, including former and current artists in residence, interns, instructors, staff, board, and volunteers to participate in a conversation centered on race and equity in our field. We call this community forum in an effort to share and collaborate on the cultivation and expression of our core values moving forward, and express changes we have made at WSW since our leadership transition in 2017. WSW alumnx can see this meeting as a starting point, a support system, a place to commit to change and expect accountability.

This forum will take place Tuesday June 30th at 7PM EST via Zoom. It will include three parts, beginning with an introduction by Artistic Director Erin Zona. Participants will then be divided (by the zoom algorithm) into break-out sessions in which individuals will pose/answer questions. The final section of the meeting will be a reporting session in which all groups will present. Art will be shared and action items will be set.
