Across sectors, artists and arts organizations are increasingly being called upon to activate the social imagination, motivate civic
participation, broaden who has voice, ground grassroots organizing, and lend
inspirational images, messages, and meaning to catalyze and sustain the work of
community development, civic engagement, and movement building. Join us to
discuss findings of the recent report, Trend or Tipping Point: Arts
& Social Change Grantmaking
. Released by Americans for the Arts’
Animating Democracy program, the report assembles a first-time portrait of arts
and social change funders, and others supporting civic engagement and social
change through arts and cultural strategies.

Animating Democracy
co-directors Barbara Schaffer Bacon and Pam Korza will offer an
overview of the range of funders supporting this work, how grantmakers think
about community, civic, and social change in the context of agency goals, and
what outcomes they are looking for through their support. Whether exploring or
affirming your place in supporting “arts for change,” this webinar can inform
planning conversations, program design, and assessment interests. Learn, too,
about related resources from Animating Democracy’s full Arts & Social Change
Mapping Initiative.

Barbara Schaffer Bacon and Pam Korza
co-direct Animating Democracy, a program of Americans for the Arts that
inspires, informs, promotes, and connects arts and culture as potent
contributors to community, civic, and social change. John Esterle, the
Executive Director of The Whitman Institute and a member of the PACE board, will
introduce and facilitate the webinar.

The Trend or Tipping Point study is
supported by the Nathan Cummings Foundation, CrossCurrents Foundation, Open
Society Foundations, Lambent Foundation, and Surdna Foundation.
