The report ‘’Solidarity Not Charity: Arts & Culture Grantmaking in the Solidarity Economy” is now available. This initiative is about the ways that arts and culture grantmakers can engage in systems-change work that addresses root causes rather than symptoms of cultural inequity. The cultural sector is actively seeking alternatives to business-as-usual to create economic and racial justice in the sector and beyond. Grantmakers can play a role in the transformation of the sector by following the lead of BIPOC creatives who are innovating models for self-determination and community wealth.
Leading up to this report, Teesa Bahana (32° East Ugandan Arts Trust), Gertrude Flentge (DOEN), Andrés Villalobos Cuevas (Crater Invertido) and our Binna Choi joined the conversation(s) as Arts Collaboratory.
