About Adding Voices

The first Adding Voices conference, which occurred in June 2020, saw over 400 attendees! It quickly became clear that the Adding Voices community and resources must extend beyond the one-day conference. Many attendees shared that this was the FIRST time they had connected with other art educators of color. Allies asked how to continue the work, some just beginning the long journey into decolonizing their curriculum. This is where our Patreon page comes in.
Adding Voices began as a free virtual conference for art educators of color and allies, founded by Flavia Zuñiga-West. Flavia is a full time art teacher, speaker, advocate, and mama of two currently living in Los Angeles. She has worked with the American Alliance of Museums and has taught art in elementary, middle, and high school classrooms. She currently teaches at an independent school, practicing Culturally Responsive Teaching and serves as faculty advisor for the Black Student Leadership and Culture Club.
Soon after the first conference, one of the presenters, Sydney Snyder, came on board as a co-organizer for future conferences and editor and contributor to the Patreon resources. Sydney is also an educator in Los Angeles who brings her experience in inclusive model education and adaptive arts to the resources you find here. Sydney oversees a TAB studio at a charter school that serves students from TK-8th grade.

Since the conference is free, many attendees asked how they could support Adding Voices. Afterall, most conferences cost $120+ per day minimum to attend! This Patreon is a way to provide ongoing resources and support to members and a way for you to support conference-related expenses. If you would simply like to support our work on the conference and related events, our Starter Level is just $2/month. In addition to our free conferences, you can receive year round support starting at just $5/month for our Learner Level. Learner Level patrons can expect a monthly newsletter that will include artist spotlights, book lists, games, outside resources, etc. Patrons looking for additional resources can join us at the Change Maker Level at $10/month level which will include the newsletter, a monthly art lesson, and exclusive voting power for future content. All levels of monthly subscriptions will help cover the costs of running the free conference and related events--website domain, speaker stipends, giveaways, etc. Thank you so much for your support!
