14aug6:30 pm8:30 amGoing Beyond Grants for Artists of Color and Native Artists


Event Details

In an effort to close the economic gap, and increase access to arts funding for people of color and Indigenous people (POCI), Springboard for the Arts is launching a workshop series that will provide seasoned tips and tools on how to (1) navigate different funding options for POCI artists and (2) work collectively and collaboratively towards a more equitable, diverse and inclusive ecosystem. These two workshops are reserved for POCI artists only. A third and final installment will be a day-long event held this fall and open to all.

In part two of this series, we will look closer at the fundraising landscape, examine the limitations of grant-based funding and explore how POCI artists can go beyond grants to more sustainable, regenerative and community-driven options such as crowdfunding, microfinance and earned income strategies. Refreshments provided.
