Description

Alesondra (Alex) Christmas, an ABD Doctoral Candidate in the Department of Dance, continues to spread anti-racist praxis in the arts with new Scarlet Canvas Courses “Anti-Racism in the Arts: the Basics” and “Anti-Racism & Social Justice in Dance.”

These self-paced, asynchronous courses aim to provide free arts-centered education and resources to promote a more just arts ecosystem. “Anti-Racism in the Arts: the Basics” is a brief survey course that provides foundational knowledge to begin dismantling racism across the arts.  “Anti-Racism & Social Justice in Dance” is designed for dancers, audience members, and administrators to build anti-racist thought and action within the dance community.

Both courses are free and open to the public, but they are designed for early career professionals or those without extensive anti-racist training.
 

Anyone can take both courses at no cost through OSU Scarlet Canvas.
 


Christmas pursued this work in part through CEHV's Ethics Circle program in Spring 2022, and received financial support from CEHV to continue her work the following summer.
