Promoting Equity through Craft: Master Class with Johnson Fellow Tanya Aguiniga

Saturday, June 16, 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

In 2018, Americans for the Arts awarded the first annual Yankee Johnson Fellowship to public artist and community activist Tanya Aguiniga. This special three-hour master class explores Aguiniga's artistic practice, discusses the tenets that underscore her work, and maps a plan for using principles of equity and community engagement to develop new arts-based community development projects in your own community.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn more about the creative practice and community impact of Johnson Fellow Tanya Aguiniga.
  2. Gain practical knowledge about cultural equity, equitable artmaking, and the important ability to know when you should and should not be part of a community's process.
  3. Map practices onto your home community, and leave with a starting plan of how you might better and more authentically practice arts-based community development at home.


This session is part of the Equity and Engagement sessions.
