Real Talk: People of Color Tell Their Stories on Working in and With Arts Organizations
Seattle Arts Leadership Team (SALT) and the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture’s Turning Commitment into Action (TCA) program are bringing Real Talk: People of Color Tell Their Stories on Working in and With Arts Organizations to Seattle. Real Talk is a project organized by Arts Workers for Equity(AWE) in Portland Oregon, focusing on personal accounts of applying for work, job interviews, work culture and leaving your job as they relate to being a person of color in the field of arts administration.

SALT and TCA are gathering stories from Seattle arts administrators and artists of color about their day-to-day working experiences in arts organizations at listening stations, events, online, and through informal chats. Participants may request to be listed as anonymous.

The stories will be archived on AWE’s tumbler site and compiled for a staged reading tentatively scheduled for the fall of 2017. The staged reading will be a facilitated racial equity training that blends personal experience with action steps for addressing inequity and a path for achieving equity in the workplace. The script will also be used at future racial equity trainings hosted by ARTS.

Accepting submissions until July 15th, 2017
