2022 GIA Conference: Registration Begins Next Week
Registration for the 2022 GIA Conference: Converge/Transform opens next Tuesday, June 28!

Grantmakers in the Arts is thrilled to welcome you back to New York City– occupied Munsee Lenape, Wappinger, Canarsie, Lekawe, and Matinecock lands and hometown to GIA since 2018 (for our first in-person conference since Denver)! We believe the vibrance and creativity of the people of NYC keep us feeling, dreaming, and fighting for new futures. What can we make possible by gathering, attending to both grief and joy, and committed to moving forward together?

Join us October 6-12 as we reunite to reimagine the present and the future of arts and culture, featuring in-person, virtual, and off-site sessions as well as inspiring keynote presentations and performances. All GIA members are eligible for discounted conference registration. Be sure to take advantage of the early bird rate.
Tomorrow! Join us for the next Cultural Policy Action Lab Public Learning Series
Public Investment & Grantmaking
Wednesday, June 22 at 11am PDT | 2pm EDT

One of the most common and widely used public policy tools in the arts sector is grant-making investments in artists, cultural agencies and programs. Join Grantmakers in the Arts, and the National Association of State Arts Agencies to understand how granting policies can shift to support wider access and deeper self-determination for BIPOC and other intersectional communities. Featuring a discussion with panelists Ryan Koons (Maryland State Arts Council), Tariana Navas-Nieves (Denver Arts & Venues), and Michael J. Bobbit (Mass Cultural Council) moderated by GIA President Eddie Torres and GIA Board Vice Chair Pam Breaux (National Assembly of State Arts Agencies).

And, if you missed last week’s session, be sure to catch the recording here!
