We look forward to building the association even stronger throughout the year. As an association, it is important to be collective in the understandings of ideas, difference, practices and processes and the ways in which we can grow that is nurturing and decolonising. The broadening of reach within a Critical Race space is important to further strengthen CRT and Whiteness Studies within the Australian sphere. The recent poetry reading from SisterZai of ‘God is a Black Woman’ demonstrated the resonance that can be gained from exploring CRT and Whiteness within arts practice and community work. So exciting things to come!
Please watch this space for further discussions on what lies ahead for ACRAWSA. We shall keep you informed on any new directions or events we may hold in the future.
