Second Opportunity!

This event was first held on November 16th and sold out. The organizers have been encouraged to hold this event again to allow for more people to participate, so we are hosting it for a second time. Please note that this is the same workshop as the November 16th event.

Carnegie Museum of Art's Empowered Educators Series teams up with Remake Learning Meetups for a very special evening with Jawanza K. Rand.

Race and social justice confront us in the news daily. 20/20: The Studio Museum in Harlem and Carnegie Museum of Art offers a metaphoric picture of America by mapping the many ways in which artists respond to the social and political conditions that shape our lives. But how do educators enter into this conversation? How does art support relevant, engaging, and equitable learning in classrooms? This Meetup will outline tools for white teachers to start and have successful conversations about race, based on research currently underway at the Center for Urban Education, University of Pittsburgh.

Light dinner will be provided, so please notify the Remake Learning Network Community Manager, Ani Martinez, with any dietary restrictions. You may also contact Ani with any other event-related requests or accessibility requirements.

Program takes place in the museum Board Room and Heinz Galleries. Please meet in the Board Room. The entrance is in the Scaife Lobby, near Forum Gallery.

Teachers can earn Act 48 activity hours for participating in Carnegie Museum of Art’s various workshops, classes, lectures, and public programs. Please see individual events for eligibility. Travel and parking information will be provided closer to the event date.

Jawanza Rand is a second-year doctoral student and Dean’s Scholar in the Urban Education and Social & Comparative Analysis of Education programs in the School of Education. As a research and teaching associate with the Center for Urban Education.

The Empowered Educators Series brings together educators, artists, field professionals, and museum staff to deepen our knowledge and understanding of topics critical to our lives as informed citizens. This is your chance to connect with both the Museum and members of the Remake Learning Network. Not a member? That's ok! This is a free and public event. All are welcome.

The Remake Learning Network promotes the productive exchange of ideas and resources and welcomes the opportunity to share our knowledge and expertise. We are accepting of one another, as well as encouraging, welcoming, and inspiring!
