GIA Conference Guiding Principles and Practices

Though these conference principals are intimately tied to the physical nature of our annual conference, they reflect the guidelines with which we frame our planning and producing of the convening.

Grantmakers in the Arts has a long-held commitment to engaging the community in each city where the annual national conference is held. In planning and producing the GIA Conference, GIA employs a set of principles and practices which seek to create a positive impact for both conference participants and the local community. As with all GIA programs, the conference is also deeply informed by a commitment to racial equity in arts philanthropy.
