Creative Practice as Civic Practice

Supporting artist power in community-led transformation

Friday, November 13, 1:00pm - 4:00pm EST

Artists are the shapers and drivers of culture. They offer solace and inspiration in times of crisis and break barriers to create solidarity across cultures. In their hands lies the power to change hearts and minds and bring communities together. So, why aren’t artists called on and elevated more frequently when cities and states are creating solutions?

Reimagining Narratives of Power

Cultural strategy and philanthropic practice

Friday, November 20, 1:00pm - 4:00pm EST

As funders of arts and culture, we know the power that artists and culture makers can have to shape, influence, and even change the narratives by which we organize, make decisions, and build the future. Grantmakers have the opportunity to interrogate how this work can and should be supported. They also have the opportunity to ask what they are willing to do to change internal, institutional narratives in order to make such possibilities more accessible and more equitable.
