Beyond Grants: Comprehensive Support for Individual Artists

Tuesday, October 14, 1:45 pm – 4:45 pm
SCAD Atlanta

Organized by Ruby Lerner, president and CEO, Creative Capital Foundation and Carolyn Somers, executive director, Joan Mitchell Foundation. Presented by Ruby Lerner; Carolyn Somers; Lauren Cornell, executive director, Rhizome (an affiliate of the New Museum in New York); and David Dombrosky, executive director, Center for Arts Management and Technology, Carnegie Mellon University.

Support for individual artists takes many forms. This session will look at the innovative ways artists are being supported that go beyond the traditional grant making most arts funders are familiar with.

Panelists will discuss efforts that originate in the arts community as well as look at the unique ways that the commercial sector has provided patronage and opportunities to artists.

Additionally we will look at ways that artists are developing cutting edge alternative programs to advance their (own) careers.

Particular attention will be paid to the use of technology by funders and artists alike.
