Anti-Racism as Organizational Compass Series: Sipp Culture


Monday, January 11, 2020


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

In our fourth conversation of the series, our dialogue facilitator, Masharika Prejean Maddison, will speak to key stakeholders of Mississippi Center for Cultural Production (Sipp Culture), a rural community organization based in Utica, MS. Sipp Culture believes in honoring the legacies of community builders and weaves together research, development, local agriculture, with contemporary media & storytelling to promote the legacy and vision of their hometown while also using a place-based model to advocate for the resources its residences need to be self-sufficient.

Toya Lillard, executive director of viBE Theater Experience will lead the reflection session for attendees on Tuesday, January 12, 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.
