Dismantling Creative Apartheid Workshop Series

Santa Fe Art Institute, Santa Fe, NM

The Santa Fe Art Institute, in collaboration with the Institute for American Indian Arts Museum, received support to initiate a series of intensive workshops, involving a variety of leaders in the art field, to articulate alternative ways of understanding and valuing art, decoupled from the Eurocentric commercialization that today largely informs the making, exhibition, and interpretation of art and creativity.

Workshops, presented under the overall theme Dismantling Creative Apartheid: Fostering Individual Empowerment and Cultural Self-Determination, will occur in Santa Fe two times each year for three years.  Each workshop will invite 12 individuals including artists, art writers, art historians, policy makers, museum directors, curators, and funders.
