Working toward equity begins with embracing differences. The arts can help communities overcome resistance, open imaginations toward creative problem solving, and build empathy among different people in an area. The arts can create a sense of belonging that anchors residents to a place. In this TRUE Tuesday session, we heard from three Minnesota artists who have experience using arts for transformation and from a leading arts organization on how you can start integrating art into your equity work.
