Toward an Anti-Racist Art Ecosystem Conference Series

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s (SAIC) Toward an Anti-Racist Art Ecosystem Conference Series will convene three dialogues on anti-racism featuring art and design industry leaders from various backgrounds, including art and design education, museum practices, galleries, auction houses, practicing artists, and more.

In fall 2021, the series’ scope will broaden to include nationally-based leaders in the arts, and in spring 2022, internationally-based leaders.
