Appropriation & Social Justice

 

The Rhode Island Art Education Association is an affiliate of the  National Art Education Association.  Current practices that we bring to your attention are position statements on the issues of appropriation in art education and anti-Asian Racism and Hate Crimes.  Please visit the NAEA website to read position statements on these topics.  Links are provided below.

 

Additionally, the RIAEA is currently organizing a series of workshops and book clubs to address these urgent issues.  Information and registration will be released shortly.
