The National Guild supports nine national networks designed to convene members, share resources and strategies, and drive a national conversation around vital topics in arts education. All Networks are led by a Guild Ambassador (or two) and supported by a steering committee composed of Guild members.

In 2016, Robyne Walker Murphy, James Horton, Lara Davis, and Rodney Camarce formed the ALAANA Network to center the needs and opportunities of artists and administrators of color within the community arts education field.

Now rebranded as ARE (Artists for Racial Equity) Network, participants are cultivating a more collective path forward with a new name that reflects both an inclusive and action-oriented approach.

ARE Network seeks to raise the profile of work being led by people of color in the arts, increase our access to sustained resources, and invest in the growth and leadership of people of color in community arts education.

In service of this mission, the ARE Network:

Provides a platform for dialog and learning rooted in relationships and cultural knowledge
Hosts events to foster intercultural leadership and build solidarity across our communities
Shares tools and resources for advancing racial equity within our work and organizations
Explores the role that arts and culture play in advancing racial and social justice in our communities and across the country

The ARE Network is made up of people of color working in community arts education.
