Closed Session to Appoint a Director of Cultural Affairs
PLEASE COME OUT AND SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE CULTURAL EQUITY GRANTS PROGRAM AND REGISTER YOUR OPPOSITION TO EFFORTS TO DISCREDIT IT.
The recent SF Controller’s Financial Management Report, the Interim Director’s response and the negative article in the San Francisco Chronicle have discredited the Cultural Equity Grants Program, its staff and ultimately the arts organizations and artists who work in the community. These actions have displayed a limited understanding of the idea of Cultural Equity as well a lack of awareness about how these grants have diversified and transformed San Francisco’s arts community over the past 20 years.
The Commissioners could name the next Director of Cultural Affairs at the December 5 meeting.
