Pro-BIPOC Arts Funding Community of Practice Workshop
The Pro-BIPOC Arts Funding Community of Practice workshop series, co-designed by GIA and Hillombo Consulting, focuses on building a community of practice between participants as they design or re-design their funding. This workshop series is rooted in peer-to-peer dialogue between participants as they share their ongoing efforts, and build their ability to critique, to strategize, and plan. This workshop series uses critical race theory as its frame and organizing as its call to action.
This workshop series is most appropriate for those who have previously participated in GIA’s Racial Equity in Arts Funding workshop; have already participated in racial equity, racial justice, or anti-racist trainings; or have experience designing or redesigning their funding as anti-racist.
The GIA team partnered with Hillombo Consulting to design this advanced workshop series as a continuation of our support to the field, complementing our foundational/grounding Racial Equity in Arts Funding Workshop, which was collaboratively developed with Race Forward and True North EDI.
GIA has been offering racial equity workshops for grantmakers since 2017 to overwhelmingly positive feedback. We offer these workshop series as a way to support funders with foundational guidance on how to better serve BIPOC communities through their grantmaking, as well as creating a growing peer-to-peer community for learning and support.
We have adapted our workshops from the in-person format to offer them safely to you online. The new structure will create more opportunities for reflection and dialogue without sacrificing the quality content.
The workshop will be divided into four 3-hours modules, totaling 12 hours.
GIA and Hillombo Consulting are currently scheduling our 2024 workshop series and will announce the dates and open the link for registration by the end of 2023
In the spirit of mutual aid, we charge those with the largest grantmaking budgets a higher fee so that we are able to secure the participation and perspectives of those with smaller professional development budgets.
