Call for Black Workman Arts Member Note-Taker for AROBA on March 1, 2021

“A Room Of Black Artists: Black Mental Health Symposium and Action” (AROBA) is the first of an annual symposium that promotes Black mental wellness in the arts community. AROBA advocates wellness in Black communities by increasing awareness and reducing stigma around Black mental health issues.

The selected note-taker will receive an honorarium for their time.

To participate, you must:

  • Be a Workman Arts Member
