building inclusive communities through the arts
at Essex Woods Meeting & Retreat Center
ACI's Artist Leader Retreats are POC focused and led, co-created by the artist leaders surrounding topics of importance to their community and social justice focused praxis. Artists come from across the country to gather for this iterative, restorative and action-oriented community building. Workshop topics explored include: API & Black Solidarity, ID Molecules, Alternatives to Capitalism, and more.
