Cultivating Better Tomorrows reshapes the dynamics of performing arts communities to produce environments where all artists can thrive. Created for professional artists, administrators, and leaders we provide engaging services to organizations of all sizes.
Community Care is a series of experiences designed to keep
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at the forefront of your organization.
A commitment to ongoing educational and community building experiences will support positive transformations in your organization.
Although we cannot dismantle racism in one session, we can begin to define its foundation and explore how it affects the artists we reach. We will learn to develop an anti-racist lens in our communities through discussion and application highlighting Anti-Blackness. This frame of reference will serve as the catalyst to provide exceptional experiences for all.
After we have developed shared understandings through “Defining an Anti-Racist Learning Environment” we will begin to focus on strategy. We will recognize structural inequities and learn how to create and foster a culture that values racial equity. By examining current policies, procedures, and practices, we will produce environments where all artists can thrive.
In the first two sessions we acknowledge how racist systems and values harm our work places. In “Sustaining an Anti-Racist Learning Environment” we will address common offenses, the impact of individual actions, and how positive change can be achieved. By integrating our anti-racist lens into our daily activities we can radically transform our environments.
We invite your staff and company artists to a guided conversation centered in contributing to a positive and welcoming environment. We will discuss what you can accomplish as individuals, and how the organization can support everyone moving forward. This session will give all participants a chance to connect and acknowledge that this work will be continued together.
Community Circles provide a safe space for all members of the community to listen and express emotions without fear of judgement. Under the guidance of trained facilitators, participants can begin to understand the perspectives of others and develop deeper connections. Circles lift up what unites us rather than what divides us while discovering, respecting, and honoring the unique experiences of each person.
Your organization is working hard to support and implement positive change for a more inclusive environment for all. As we reflect on the past year, we will focus on how everyone has contributed to making the workplace a welcoming environment and how we can do even better in the year to come.
Having a support system can be vital to an organization's diversity, equity, and inclusion success. Cultivating Better Tomorrows can support you in evaluating organizational impact, developing strategic goals, and managing challenges.
