Meet the Rootwork Learning Cohort

The Rootwork Learning Cohort is a small cohort that is coming together to study, practice, and document new models of community arts education practices informed by, and supportive of the many varied lived experiences of our communities in the unique context of our current moment. These six teams of community arts educators were selected through an application process to attend the “Rootwork | Grounding Community Arts Education Beyond the Pandemic” speaker series, and then use the sessions as inspiration over the next five months to design new, adaptive models for community arts education that respond to our current moment. 

The teams are being guided in this process by a trio of Rootwork Advisors: Karla Estela Rivera, Calida Jones, and Barbara Mumby-Huerta.
Meet the teams and the advisors here.
