As the arts and culture sector and the leaders who operate within it adjust to the rippling professional and social effects of COVID-19, NAS Community Calls were started to provide spaces for our alumni community to come together in support of one another, sharing perspectives and discussing opportunities to do powerful good by working together.
We’ve developed three types of calls to meet the needs of our community. You can read more about each call below, view their upcoming schedules, and follow the links to sign up.
Only want/able to attend one call in a series? That’s fine! There’s no requirement to register for all of a call type’s upcoming dates. Join as many or as few as you’d like.
All Community Working Sessions
All Community Working Sessions bring leaders together across NAS programs to create a frame and space for exploring structural changes that need to happen in the arts and culture sector – on both the individual and organizational levels – to advance anti-racist practices. These 90-minute calls are challenging, supportive and non-judgemental spaces that ignite relationships and spur action.
A monthly one hour gathering for leaders who identify with the BIPOC community to share their experiences, build solidarity, and gain peer support in order to continue the work of undoing racist structures and advancing racial justice.
