The Art of Community is a ten-year old facilitation and engagement consulting practice that is evolving into a black-woman-led, multiracial social justice collective of facilitators, coaches, organizers, writers, healers, researchers, activists, planners, educators and artists rooted in the American South.
The vision and goal is individual and collective liberation. We believe in an ecology of social justice where many contributions are needed and the roles we each play are valued. We believe that we will win!
Our approach is grounded in healing justice and centers the leadership and perspective of those most directly impacted by injustice. "We heal so we can act and organize." Our collective aims to live now the world we want to see by practicing at a small scale the transformation we envision for our communities and the earth.
We support individuals and organizations working toward racial equity, racial justice and liberation. As trusted guides, design partners, and advisers, we see you through the inner shifts and the structural actions that undo racism and other forms of oppression.
We work best with people who understand that equity, justice and liberation requires a long term (generational) investment. There are no quick fixes. The work is complex, joyous, challenging, rewarding, emergent, uncomfortable, and lifelong. We work best with people devoted to personal, interpersonal and systemic transformation:
