Spotlight On Arts & Culture | January 11, 2021 | How 2020 Changed the Face of Arts and Culture Funding Hosted by David Green of The Cultural Alliance Of Fairfield County. Our January edition of the SPOTLIGHT is on “How 2020 Changed the Face of Arts & Culture Funding.” This program is inspired by the discussion in our November program that celebrated Federal CARES Act funding for arts and culture organizations. In that show, it became apparent that the intertwined crises of 2020 were changing some of the ways funding decisions were made. We decided to devote this Spotlight program to changes that are taking place within funding agencies and to hear from some new funders on the scene and the ways they are distributing funding. We welcome back Elizabeth Shapiro, Director of the CT Office of the Arts, and Frank Mitchell, chair of CT Humanities Application Review Committee. They are joined by: Jacqueline Coleman, Senior Community Impact Officer for the Hartford Foundation, who put together a working group of artists and arts organizations of color to inform the Foundation’s arts and culture funding; Michael Van Leesten, who has organized a Social Venture Partners’ new Racial Equity Fund for community-based projects with decision-makers based inside those communities; and Abe Hilding-Salorio, Community Outreach Manager for Sustainable CT that funds community projects, using a crowdfunding model, working with Patronicity. Hear how the crises of 2020 continue to affect the networking, strategies, and community relationships within traditional funders and how new funding types are emerging to better deal with the inequities of the prevailing systems.
