We will delve into the ways in which our community can address, engage, and be proactive, not reactive, to the realities of race that exist locally.
What is CoRE?
Conversations on Race and Empowerment (CoRE) is presented as a facilitated community dialogue within the Arts Center’s exhibition, THINGS ARE WHAT WE ENCOUNTER: DR. CHARLES SMITH + Heather Hart. CoRE will discuss the impact of race, power, and identity in our country and community. Reverend Lex Cade-White and Alexandra Nugent, both experienced facilitators, will use data-driven resources to engage participants in approachable and inclusive discussions on race through creative expression, self-reflection, and interactions with Arts Center artists-in-residence and their work. This series will equip participants with the vocabulary and knowledge needed to further their understanding of historical and current race relations and privilege. The CoRE series will give tools to empower participants to go out and make a difference in their communities.
