Networks of Color

Development of a New Collaborative Model


Monday, October 10, 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Organized by Maria Lopez De Leon, executive director, National Association of Latino Arts and Culture.

Presented by Vicky Takamine, executive director, Pa’i Foundation; Carlton Turner, executive director, Alternate ROOTS.

Rather than continuing historical separations and divisions, networks of color, specifically inclusive of Native American, African American, and Latino artists and organizations and other groups, are working collectively to allow for the dispersal of knowledge and resources and the creation of an alternative model for capacity building. Through a collective process, these networks honor place-based traditions and the common threads found in each group’s experience. Together, networks of color add new, authentic voices to the national narrative of this country.
