A recording of this presentation is available here.

In the upcoming Winter 2020 edition of the GIA Reader, the latest edition of GIA’s funder snapshot will include “Foundation Grants to Arts and Culture, 2017,” based on the most recent completed year of Candid. data, and “Public Funding for the Arts, 2019,” prepared by the National Assembly of State Art Agencies (NASAA). How have things changed since the last GIA funder snapshot in February 2019, and what can we look forward to for 2020?

Join us on February 11 to hear from Reina Mukai, manager, Global Projects & Partnerships, Candid.; Ryan Stubbs, senior director of research for NASAA; and Patricia Mullaney-Loss, research manager for NASAA. They will share a summary of key findings and insights into what these findings reveal about the current arts grantmaking environment, as well as an introduction to what we can expect for the new year.

Be on the look-out for the Winter 2020 edition of the GIA Reader, and we look forward to seeing you on the February 11 for the webinar, GIA’s Annual Research on Support for Arts and Culture!
