2022 SouthCoast Community Foundation Virtual Institute for Trustees

April 9, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

As part of the Creative SouthCoast Initiative and its commitment to a thriving arts and culture economy that is equitable and inclusive, the SouthCoast Community Foundation is providing free access to this two-part virtual retreat.


Participants are invited to join the Haus of Glitter Performance Lab to unravel and heal from urgency, a symptom of white supremacy culture, both in our creative practice and in the ways we move through the world. Nurturing our mission to shift the energetic center of the universe towards collective liberation, this series is an invitation to slow down, listen and transform with us. Using the creative practices that ground our work, participants will explore urgency as it shows up in ideology, in institutions, in interpersonal relationships, and from within.

Alternating between whole-group creative experiences and reflection in breakout affinity spaces for white allies and for BIPOC, this series seeks to rehearse what an equitable distribution of energy can look like in anti-racist work for artists, arts leadership, arts educators, and arts activists. While there will be opportunities for blended discussion, BIPOC participants can trust that there will always be a BIPOC-only discussion group, led by a BIPOC facilitator, available for all discussions throughout this two-part workshop. The Haus of Glitter is a community of artists, educators, counselors/therapists, performers, and healers dedicated to using art, play, and processes of mindful creation as tools for equity and justice.

Please be prepared (and dress accordingly) for a virtual yoga + meditation offering for the first hour of each session.

Suitable for all creatives in any discipline.

In order to create a safer space where difficult questions can be tackled, this workshop WILL NOT be recorded. You will need to attend the live workshop in order to participate in this offering.

Presented in partnership with Assets for Artists and the Barr Foundation’s Creative Commonwealth Initiative.
