Got privilege? Want to know what it’s good for? Want to make use of your advantages without insulting those who may not share them? There are so many ways creative people can help each other. With suggestions ranging from practical tips to aspirational dreams, this seminar empowers would-be allies to support BIPOC and other marginalized creatives and #ownvoices work while boosting the presence of marginalized genius.

In the lecture portion of this three hour webinar, authors Nisi Shawl and K. Tempest Bradford will offer real-life examples, general guidance, and a host of resources to help creativity workers walk their talk. The webinar concludes with an hour+ of Q & A.
