2022 GIA Conference
New York | Oct 6 – 12

Community Accountability & Agreements

Regardless of the type of space, when we gather in community, conflict can sometimes arise in our discussions and reflections of society, civic spaces, and the philanthropic field. We offer below agreements to hold and uphold as we show up throughout the 2021 GIA Annual Conference to support community accountability, equity, and wellbeing.

GIA is committed to addressing structural inequities and increasing philanthropic and government support for African, Latinx, Asian, Arab, and Native American (ALAANA) artists and arts organizations. Racial equity is a lens through which GIA aims to conduct all of its work, as well as a specific area of its programming.

Our organization and our members do not tolerate racism, harassment, ageism, homophobia, sexism, transphobia, ableism, or prejudice based on ethnicity, nationality, class, gender, gender presentation, language ability, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, body size, age, religion, color, ethnicity language, asylum status, or religious affiliation.

Please follow these guidelines to keep our conversations and events within this conference as constructive, generative, and safe for all.

GIA acknowledges and thanks the folks at Allied Media Conference, Daniel Lim Consulting, and ArtPlace America for inspiring the creation of these guidelines.
