Racial Equity in Arts Funding Workshops
GIA’s Racial Equity in Arts Funding workshops have been designed to help participants recognize that cultural funding is a system that has been historically racialized like so many societal systems and to help guide our approaches to re-designing cultural funding as an anti-racist system.
The GIA Racial Equity in Arts Funding workshop includes information on the history of racialization in the United States, the history of cultural funding, and real-world stories of success and examples of racial equity funding, strategies, and resources you may bring with you back to your organizations.
The next workshop will be 9 hours and divided into three 3-hour modules including:
- March 9, 2021 from 9am–12pm PT / 12–3pm ET
- March 16, 2021 from 9am–12pm PT / 12–3pm ET
- March 23, 2021 from 9am–12pm PT / 12–3pm ET
Workshop participants in cities like Detroit; Cleveland; Seattle; Trenton, NJ; and Boston, MA; have expressed that what they learned from the workshop will be useful to their work. Here are some of their remarks:
