Anti-Racism Dialogues

Students in the DMC

The Anti-Racism Dialogues  are focused on how to create a more just and equitable MassArt community. They are designed to increase our capacity to have courageous conversations about race and racism that affect the way we teach, learn, work, and live with one another. This approach is grounded in the belief that individual change is simultaneous to addressing institutional racism.

Following the training, participants will have the opportunity to assess their readiness to apply facilitation skills for the Anti-Racism Dialogues at a later date.

affinity groups: what are they and why are they important? 

Affinity groups provide spaces for individuals to work within their own racial groups. Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and White groups in the U.S. have been impacted by racism in different ways. It is important to provide time and space to work explicitly and intentionally on understanding one’s own culture to increase a critical analysis around these concepts. 

The JET office is working with members of our community to hold space for faculty and staff affinity groups to meet voluntarily throughout the semester. Groups will meet together periodically for time in community.
