Call for Interest: GIA Support for Individual Artist Committee
GIA members have been working together to promote and improve funding for individual artists for over 20 years. The committee has been an incubator for such projects as a scan of scholarly research on artist support, a visual timeline outlining the history of artist support funding, major publications and programs, and a project evaluating equitable ways to collect data during the individual artist grant application process. This thought leadership is driven and inspired by our members who support individual artists, and we deeply value their commitment to this work. To express interest in joining the committee or to recommend a colleague, please complete the nomination form by next week, December 14, 2021.
