“Arizona Arts is committed to racial justice and equity in the arts,” said Andrew Schulz, vice president for the arts. “Dr. Kraehe is the ideal person with years of experience to strengthen our commitment, recognizing and embracing the diversity of identities, experiences and perspectives in the classroom, in curriculum, recruiting and hiring."

“I know Amy as a thoughtful researcher, instructor, collaborator and leader. She will help us take those steps as a division to embody the values of equity in and through the arts.”

Kraehe is a tenured associate professor in the Art and Visual Culture Education program at the @uarizonaschoolofart and affiliate faculty in Human Rights Practice. She co-founded the Racial Justice Studio, an interdisciplinary research incubator that promotes understanding racism and anti-racism through artistic and creative practice. In the fall, Kraehe will co-teach a new course, ‘Rehearsals in Anti-Racism,’ the studio’s initial effort that provides students an opportunity to use artistic methods to develop critical and embodied knowledge of systemic racism.

“I’m most looking forward to seeing what we can do together in the division to make substantive changes to ensure inclusive excellence is not simply a virtue but instead is a habit that infuses the culture of Arizona Arts,” Kraehe said. “I’m also excited to foster greater connection, coordination, and communications among inclusion innovators in Arizona Arts.”
