Arts and Social Change, A Must: Part 2, How To: Content and Pedagogy for Arts Management Programs
Leonie Hodkevitch, Morenga Hunt

A global array of societal factors has prompted increased conversations about identity and community based on diversity, equity, and justice. The expectation that cultural projects should and can contribute to social justice through diversity, inclusion and equity has long gone beyond social projects and concerns a wide variety of art and cultural projects. Within this context, artists, arts administrators, and cultural workers around the globe are engaging more deeply to assist in addressing these urgent challenges. Forward looking arts administration educators and managers are having new discussions about the role of arts and culture in addressing issues of social justice, community cohesion, inclusion, and civic engagement. The panel will explore options for content and pedagogy, theories, practices, and models for programs. A group exercise and wrap-up discussion consider concepts and strategies that participants can apply in arts administration courses. By the end of this session, attendees will: (1) consider policies, strategies, and practices for inclusion of diversity and social justice content within arts administration curriculum; (2) add pedagogical strategies for inclusion of diversity and social justice content, (3) identify benefits and challenges of making these curriculum content changes, (4) share relevant diversity and social justice content in their own Arts Administration programs. (5) connect to other colleagues dedicated to this field.
