On March 23 and 24, Jonathan Herman, executive director, and James C. Horton, director of learning and leadership development, represented the Guild and its members at the Create Justice Forum, a two-day convening produced by the Carnegie Hall Weill Music Institute and the Arts for Incarcerated Youth Network. The first of a series of three, the forums bring together thought leaders, artists, representatives from non-profit and government agencies, and policymakers from across the US with the aim of developing collective impact strategies to help our most at-risk children reach their full potential through opportunities in the arts.

“We have seen firsthand the meaningful difference that can be made in young people’s lives when you engage them through music and the arts, inviting them to nurture their talents, work toward personal goals, and pursue excellence. It helps equip them to succeed in and strengthen their communities,” said Sarah Johnson, director of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute.

The first forum is led, in part, by Marc Bamuthi-Joseph, a prominent artist and chief of program and Ppedagogy for the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, CA. Participants will have the opportunity to share best practices from their respective communities and identify potential strategies, next steps, and tools to take back home.

Stay tuned for an upcoming video chat from the Guild where staff and Guild members will share key takeaways from the two-day convening.
