MetLife Foundation Noted Among Funders of Arts and Justice Initiative
I recently framed the Lincoln Center Cultural Innovation Fund as Exhibit A in how legacy institutions can appeal to donors increasingly drawn to programs that address major social challenges.
I now bring you Exhibit B, courtesy of Carnegie Hall. It recently announced that its Weill Music Institute and the Los Angeles-based Arts for Incarcerated Youth Network have partnered to launch a national initiative focused on the "intersection of arts and youth justice."
The Create Justice initiative will work to generate a national network of arts and justice leaders dedicated to "fostering strategies that empower the nation's most at-risk youth to reach their full potential through opportunities in the arts." Building on a forum held in March, the effort will include additional meetings to be held in September in Los Angeles and in March in New York City. . .
