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.
