Image for Race Forward Announces Roster for Innovation Lab, Includes Guild Members

Jun 21, 2017

Race Forward, a New York based non-profit advancing racial justice, has selected sixty New York City arts and cultural organizations to participate in their Racial Equity in the Arts Innovation Lab, a yearlong training program to improve racial equity in the arts and culture sector. The participants include Guild members Carnegie Hall, Ifetayo Cultural Arts Academy, and Lincoln Center, as well as prestigious New York cultural institutions such as Brooklyn Academy of Music, Whitney Music of American Arts, and the Brooklyn Museum.

“By equipping the diverse and influential group of arts organizations in our Lab with concrete institutional practices for racial equity, we hope to increase sector-wide readiness for racial justice and see material improvements in the ways that New Yorkers of color experience and access arts and culture in our city,” said Nayantara Sen, culture and content project manager for Race Forward.

According to Race Forward, “The Racial Equity in the Arts Innovation Lab will work with the sixty influential arts and cultural institutions to develop skills and strategies for interrupting racial inequity within their institutions, and positively affecting their audiences, stakeholders, constituencies — as well as staff and team members of color.”
