Turning Commitment into Action for the Arts

Home » Turning Commitment into Action for the Arts

The Seattle Office for Civil Rights is partnering with the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture on RSJI’s (Race and Social Justice Initiative) inaugural Community Institute for Racial Equity training.

The training will take place:

May 15, from 8 am–6 pm;

May 29, from 9 am–6pm;

July 15, from 1pm–5pm;

With a final session in the fall (Date TBD).


This four-part training will give groups the tools they need to turn their commitments to building racial equity into actions for tangible change – both within their organizations and through their work in and with community.   Participants will develop skills to address perceived and actual barriers to racial equity within their organizations and the arts and cultural sector.

They’ll use a racial equity assessment to identify strategies to achieve racial equity. They will then develop a plan to create racial equity within their groups and through their work with artists, audiences, partners and communities.

The Community Institute for Racial Equity offers workshops and trainings, many of them free, to help strengthen community leadership and action for racial justice through training and support.
