Funding in R̶u̶r̶a̶l Remote Communities
Tuesday, May 21, 2:00pm EDT / 11:00am PDT
- Lindsie Bear, program director of Native Cultures Fund, Humboldt Area Foundation
- Reuben Roqueñi, director of National Artist Fellowships, Native Arts and Cultures Foundation
Session 4 of the 2019 Webinar Series.
Grantmakers in the Arts is a national membership association serving communities of all shapes and sizes across the US and into Canada. We know that philanthropic practice for art and culture funding can look very similar or very different in various contexts. As we think about the unique challenges that face various communities that are considered rural, funding practices often come packaged for a similar prototype while the term “rural” remains a descriptor for objectively remote communities and bustling cities alike. However, when we think particularly about indigenous and native communities in tandem with arts and culture funding, philanthropic practice can look very different.
Join us on May 21 to hear from Lindsie Bear, program director of Native Cultures Fund, Humboldt Area Foundation, and Reuben Roqueñi, director of National Artist Fellowships, Native Arts and Cultures Foundation. They will share how they have seen supporting indigenous communities, both remote and rural, and they will offer suggestions for rural and remote arts and culture philanthropic practice for communities across the nation.
