Empowered Educators Series: Interrogating Our Collective Imaginations and Building New Worlds, Part 5

Carnegie Museum of Art

Free Event


We close this academic year by returning to our central goal: imagining a just world where inequities have been eradicated. How does that society operate? What are your personal experiences living in this world?

Through small group discussions, hands-on activities, and radical curating, we will continue interrogating our minds, curricula, institutions, systems. We will continue to explore our individual and collective understanding of how to imagine and build new worlds.

This is the fifth and final session of the 2018–19 Empowered Educators series. The second year of the series will continue in the fall. Please watch for email alerts for dates and registration.

We will start promptly at 5:05 p.m., so please account for rush-hour traffic in Oakland. Meet in Carnegie Museum of Art’s Board Room.

About the Series

The Empowered Educators Series provides a forum for teachers, educators, administrators, counselors, and the like to think critically and hold open discussions on race, equity, bias, and pedagogy. The program promotes ongoing learning, partnerships with supporting organizations, and community building among teachers.

Carnegie Museum of Art, Center for Urban Education, Western Pennsylvania Writing Project, the Learning Instigator, and Remake Learning have joined to support educators in their approaches and abilities to facilitate thoughtful discussions about race in the classroom.

The Grable Foundation provides support for this series.

Act 48 hours are available through Carnegie Museum of Art.
