Exploring racism through the ARTS
A.R.T.S. (Anti-Racism Talent Slams) are a platform for artists of all kinds to express their ideas about racism and discrimination and engage the community at large in the conversation.
We invite artists and community members whose work speaks to questions of identity, overcoming barriers, or offers a hopeful message in the face of racism to consider being a part of the next A.R.T.SLAM.
Interested artists and community members should contact CRC, to find out how to be involved in the next session.
