When many funders think about arts and culture grantmaking, they put it in a separate box. While promoting the arts and revitalizing culture are important ends in themselves, what would happen if we invested more in arts and cultural approaches to help us achieve other grantmaking agendas?
In this program, we will explore this crossover approach and discuss ways grantmakers have incorporated arts and culture-based as part of their outreach, education, and mobilizing efforts to achieve a variety of grantmaking objectives, from those focused on climate change to education and social justice. Join us to learn and share your own experiences with incorporating arts and culture to improve the impact of your grantmaking.
  • Real examples of arts and culture grants that have helped funders achieve other grantmaking objectives - in climate change, education, and social justice
  • How funders have assessed the impact of arts and culture approaches within other grantmaking programs
  • Tips from colleagues on how to consider what types of arts and culture approaches may help leverage success within your own grantmaking program
