Equity in Arts Funding

Webinar Details

Join the Atlanta Regional Commission for a first look at data on how metro Atlanta’s philanthropic foundations have funded Black arts and cultural organizations over the last 10 years, as well as a conversation about what that funding should look like in the future. The webinar will feature:

  • A look at the data focusing on how foundations have funded organizations led by Black leaders;
  • A conversation with arts and community leaders about the missed opportunities of not funding Black arts organizations – and a look forward to what the possibilities are;
  • A discussion about what philanthropic arts funding in metro Atlanta could look like in 2021 and beyond.
