Creative Conversations: Creating Equitable Arts and Cultural Community Engagement Partnerships: Webinar Series

This series is designed to foster new arts and cultural community-engaged partnerships for community-engaged social change. This features faculty and their community partners who have created equitable partnerships with impact. The teams each explain: project origins, mutually beneficial outcomes, lessons learned, strategies for sustainable collaboration, and unexpected outcomes. Attendees learn the basics of community-engaged research, including definitions, partnership building, and community engagement practices. Presenters reveal how they are sharing their research experience in publications, presentations, performances, exhibitions, digital formats, etc. Participants join a growing network of campus colleagues who are leading mutually beneficial innovative arts and cultural creative community-engaged partnerships.
