“Grantmakers In the Arts” (GIA) has re-posted/linked some of the articles from CulturalEquityMatters.org. This issue has gotten national attention of the philanthropic world.
“The mission of Grantmakers in the Arts (GIA) is to provide leadership and service to advance the use of philanthropic resources on behalf of arts and culture. GIA is the only national association of private and public funders making grants to artists and arts organizations in America. GIA’s strength is in its diversity of members: private, family, community and corporate foundations, national, state and local governmental agencies, nonprofit national, regional and local service organizations. What they all have in common is a belief that America is a better place to live and our communities are stronger when the creativity of artists is prevalent in all aspects of society.”
We welcome in GIA to our conversation on Cultural Equity and how it is being handled by the San Francisco Arts Commission.
GIA is also hosting a Online Forum on Equity in Arts Funding! It’s very exciting that that on a national level the philanthropic community is recognizing Equity in the Arts.
