How do relations of power around aspects of identity like race, ethnicity, nationality, dis/ability, class, gender, sexuality, and religion impact everyday interactions and experiences in art education? In this presentation, art educators are invited to utilize personal narratives and artmaking to critically reflect upon sociocultural factors within art education and to envision ways to transform art education practice for equity, diversity, and inclusion.
