In 2012, GIA is embarking on a multi-year research project to establish benchmark national data on financial support provided to individual artists from public, private, and nonprofit grantmakers. Research and interpretation will include recommendations for funders looking to initiate, improve, or expand their individual artists support practices. At the end of the first phase of this project in October, GIA staff and consultants will report on the initial field scan and obtain input from conference participants.
