Yesterday I attended both the luncheon workshop and the evening lecture with Tim Wise. I had also started to read "White Like Me." Both the lecture and the workshop were superb. He was passionate and informative and Wise. I do not quite understand how the administration at RISD can ignore his message.
And I quote from the introduction, "....Time Wise will argue that responsible leaders must address their individual biases and tackle the dangers of unrecognized (or in the case of RISD, recognized) privilege. Participants will leave this lecture with both strategies for creating greater equity throughout their organization and an understanding of how this work will foster stronger communities, and create more successful solutions to organizational problems." It seems strange that the Chief Operating Office of RISD can invite Tim Wise to speak to our community while the administration continues to condone and enforce inequities.

Ummm I wept. To see a passionate, yet modest and down to earth woman to have such an impact was touching. To see her activate and bring fresh, new life to dead and decrepit social situations (which have crept into the status of social norms in the cities) was inspiring and basically unbelievable. Janet is a forerunner to the new age of art and architecture of he generation to follow.
