Re-granting Today: Creating a New Generation of Funders and Reaching Marginalized Arts Communities

Wednesday, October 20, 8:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Organized by Maria Lopez De Leon, executive director, National Association of Latino Arts and Culture (NALAC).

Presented by James Kass, founder and executive director, Youth Speaks; Lori Pourier, president, First Peoples Fund; Clyde Valentin, executive director, Hip Hop Theater Festival.

This panel will examine four successful re-granting programs that demonstrate how new grantmakers are reaching artists in communities of color who fall through the cracks of the traditional grantmaking paradigm. The panel will outline best practices and share how these re-grant programs are promoting artistic production and inspiring social change by supporting artists and vital community art spaces in marginalized communities.
