As the arts sector moves toward Racial Equity, it is necessary to examine and reconcile the past, understand the present, and create change for the future. The Maryland Arts Institute of Racial Justice provides professional learning for arts organizations, independent artists, arts educators and supervisors, and arts advocates. Registration is FREE.

This series is presented by Maryland Citizens for the Arts with support from the Maryland State Arts Council.
