LANE Conversation Series: “Bingo! How Lived Experience Informs Learning”
April 23, 2020 • 2 minute read
What does it take to equip organizations with the tools they need to influence systems of equity? What practices or structures might offer organizations alternatives to the dominant culture and oppressive systems?
Through participatory action research methodology, Leveraging a Network for Equity (LANE) cohort members have identified seven ways in which their organizations approach these questions and others like them:
- Organizational capacity and infrastructure
- Organizational culture and power structures
In this six-part monthly series, LANE presents cohort discussions filmed at the 2019 National Performance Network Conference, where cohort organizations interviewed each other and shared reflections on using their lived experience to move through learning.
Nina Yarbrough and Merri Ann Osborne of CD Forum talk with Evelyn Francis and Harold Steward of The Theater Offensive about:
- what can be frightening about engaging a transformation process as leaders
- what restoration looks like as institutions change
- how good it feels to see a boss you admire gain national recognition
- and being joyfully realistic about what’s going to happen next
Alex Buffalohead and Angela Two Stars of All My Relations Arts talk with Anjee Helstrup-Alvarez of MACLA about:
- approaching things (even applications) with optimism
- transitioning from a scarcity mindset to one of generosity
- and the change you know you’re going to make versus the unexpected change
