SPACES is Committed to Diversity

Art has the potential to catalyze difficult conversations, ask important questions about cultural representation, and provide a site for interrogating power dynamics and centering marginalized voices. SPACES is exploring new ways to engage with our local student population to diversify representation of culture, race, ethnicity, socio-economic class, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and disability in our daily operations. We hope to create more opportunities for students who have been historically underrepresented in the arts and to consider the ways we can move beyond the bounds of the traditional art organization to support the wealth of visual arts already taking place in and around Cleveland.
