2019 GIA Annual Report Available
With great excitement, GIA present to you our 2019 annual report as we continue to center racial equity and justice in arts and cultural funding. As we prepared this annual report over the past weeks, it became increasingly important to us that we address not only the enormous, still not fully understood impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, but also the massive effects of incessant violence against Black folx for our peers, our communities, and our field. In this moment, we recognize our complicity in structurally racist systems and commit to movement - movement for supporting Black lives, for the dismantling of systemic racism, and for reimagining and realizing anti-racist cultural funding and philanthropy.
