Anti-Racism as Organizational Compass Series: Lion's Tooth Project

Date

Monday, December 7, 2020

Time

1:00 PM ET - 2:15 PM ET

The “Anti-Racism as Organizational Compass” series will offer the opportunity to listen to intimate conversations with six BIPOC-led arts organizations that center anti-racism in mission and practice. 

For our third conversation in the series, our dialogue facilitator, Masharika Prejean Maddison, will speak to key stakeholders of Lion’s Tooth Project, a community project based in Brooklyn, NY in service of LGBTQIA+, Immigrant, Black / Indigenous, and POC youth. Lion’s Tooth Project believes in the healing power of community, story-telling, art, and connection to the earth. Through photography, herbalism, mentorship, and self-expression, Lion’s Tooth Project’s goals are that youth reconnect to their innate belonging to the land, life purpose, and reclaim their power to speak their truth.

 

Toya Lillard, executive director of viBE Theater Experience will lead the reflection session for attendees on Tuesday, December 8, 1-2 PM EST.

 

ASL interpretation and CART captioning provided by Pro Bono ASL on Monday sessions. Verbal Descriptions will be provided by speakers in the introduction for both Monday and Tuesday. ASL interpretation and CART captioning will be provided by request for Reflection Sessions.
