Utilizing tools and resources developed by the I.D.E.A. Wave CoLab, the I.D.E.A Wave workshop series provides a guided journey towards equity, diversity, inclusion, healing, and anti-racism by offering an entry point to develop sustainable processes, conversations, and shared values in organizations, coalitions, schools, and communities.
Through workshopping and open dialogue, the tools facilitate an operational checkpoint to help map where an organization is in its I.D.E.A. journey and help identify strengths and areas of possibility. As a result of intentional and engaged interaction with the I.D.E.A. tools between workshop sessions and beyond, attendees will be able to identify areas of growth, advance I.D.E.A. in their internal practices, and demand sustainable and systemic change toward equitable and accessible TK-12 arts education.
Teams from nonprofits and philanthropic organizations in the arts education field are invited to apply. As this work requires deep commitment across all aspects of an organization, we recommend that teams include 2-3 people, with at least one senior staff member. If possible, the organization's board chair would be a great addition, as well as any more recent staff members. We encourage all organizations joining to honor this working time and incorporate the sessions into the paid workday.
NOTE: Applying teams will be selected to represent the diversity of cultures, art forms, experiences, and geography of Los Angeles County. All applications will be promptly reviewed by the I.D.E.A. Wave Co-Lab team. Participation will be confirmed shortly after.
