Reparative Arts in Community Engagement (RACE) Conference

October 5, 2023 @ 3:00 pm October 8, 2023 @ 3:00 pm

What are reparative arts? How we might chart a way forward in alleviating systemic harms and injustices by creating living monuments through staging, performance, and other ways of memorialization?

Drawing on Dorinne Kondo’s (2018) concept of ‘reparative creativity’, we understand reparative arts as the processes (methodologies/pedagogies) and/or products (visual, audio, performance) designed to present a call-to-action for change to systemic and/or structural causes of inequity and injustice in our society by amplifying community solutions towards repair and healing

This inaugural RACE Conference theme will explore what remains of Civil War Confederate monuments in Baltimore and how these spaces may better represent a shared vision where Baltimore citizens can experience belonging.
