APAP is excited to offer HEALING FORWARD™, a program designed and facilitated by Marc Bamuthi Joseph and Rika Iino and hosted by Sozo Vision, to our members. HEALING FORWARD: Arc of Systemic Allyship will be held on Thursday, October 13 from 2:00 - 4:15 p.m. (EDT).
HEALING FORWARD™ engages the entire organization, using the guiding principles of THE 4Ps: PIPELINE, PEDAGOGY, PROGRAM, PROFILE to bolster organizations in their journey towards becoming institutionally anti-racist.
Since its launch in June of 2021, HEALING FORWARD™ has impacted 50+ organizations of all sizes through retreats and workshops, with a current cohort of 100+ leaders in arts & culture activating the methodology in their organizations.
The HEALING FORWARD: Arc of Systemic Allyship 2.25-Hour Workshop is designed to introduce attendees to this unique approach and to spark a conversation on how it might deeply impact their organizations.
“Our social fabric is held together by cultural memory, community aspiration, and democratic institutions that foster American promise. Many of these institutions: civic, artistic, tech-based, and academic, weren’t always built with the most inclusive and compassionate strategies in mind.” — Marc Bamuthi Joseph
“You helped me really shift my mindset for how we approach our antiracism and DEI work. I moved from a place of uncertainty and frankly, fear, to a place of hope, compassion, and understanding. You provided a framework that will enable us to get out of the "cycle of inaction". I can now see a path forward to making real systemic changes in our work with young people and their communities and look forward to putting that framework into action.” — Kasandra VerBrugghen, Executive Director, Kahlert Youth Media Arts Center
"HealingForward IS transformative and profound. The caliber of the concepts covered and the 4 P’s framework presented left me full of food for thought and action. Bamuthi’s facilitation was brilliant. The workshop, led by Bamuthi, side by side with the grounded leadership of Rika Iino and the Sozo team was outstanding and seamless. The community of leaders that gathered for this workshop —all dedicated to grappling with probing inquiry questions and to ‘heal forward’ within their organizations and communities— was truly exceptional. Onward.” — Diana Cohn, Board Member of Magnum Foundation
