"In the Summer Institute, every voice in the space, every moment, every movement is a resource. The same is true in an open and effective classroom. By being the student, we experienced the lessons from critical viewpoints as both a participant and a facilitator. As a result, I left a better artist, teacher and curator for experiences for social change. And while I still had more questions and desire for even more intricate training, I left feeling prepared and full."
