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 the first conversation in the series, our dialogue facilitator, Masharika Prejean Maddison, spoke to key personnel of ATNSC: Center for Healing & Creative Leadership, including its founder and executive director, M. Carmen Lane, Imani Badillo, Intern at ATNSC, and Arthur Russell, Education Interventionist. ATNSC, which takes its name from the Ataensic (Atsi’tsiaka:ion) creation story, is an urban retreat center and social practice experiment in holistic health, intergenerational dialogue, leadership development, and Indigenous arts and culture in the Buckeye-Shaker neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio. Listen in while they speak to what it means to uphold the roots of its organization and create a healing space which honors the community in which it resides.
