OTHER NEWS                  

On Friday, August 18, Americans for the Arts released a statement standing against racism, bigotry, and hatred, and about the complex and important impact of public art, including monuments to the Confederacy. Public art reflects the stories and histories we most want to tell ourselves, the lessons we want to learn, the pride we collectively hold, and the memories and priorities with which we craft our communities' futures.

Americans for the Arts supports ongoing community dialogue around truth, reconciliation, and removal and replacement of the various artistic and cultural vestiges of white supremacy and racism in the United States, and the installation of monuments commemorating narratives of emancipation, shared strength, and equity. We recommend that local arts agencies and other arts institutions join these dialogues in concert with affected communities. To support a full creative life for all, Americans for the Arts commits to championing policies and practices of cultural equity that empower a just, inclusive, equitable nation. The statement includes links to resources and tools for communities.

As Charlottesville has sensitized many to the endemic racism in our society, many funders recognize that reporting on intolerance is weakened by the persistent problem of lack of diversity in media outlets. As Media Impact Funders reports,  The American Society of News Editors' 2016 Diversity Survey suggests that while newsroom numbers are improving after a long slump, the percentages of female and minority staff still don’t correspond with those of the population. Sourcing is also a problem: whites are more likely than nonwhites to have been interviewed by a local journalist. Media funders are responding with grants to organizations that support diverse journalists and media producers. This week, the MacArthur Foundation announced $5.7 million in grants to support seven organizations that serve documentary media makers from historically underrepresented backgrounds. The Knight Foundation recently gave the Ida B. Wells Society $150,000 to expand training programs for journalists of color. With support from the Dodge Foundation, researcher Sabrina Hersi Issa examined how newsrooms can strengthen their tracking of diversity. Despite these investments, Foundation Maps for Media Funding show a dip in grants to organizations and outlets that address issues of gender and race in journalism, news and information. Top funders here include the Ford Foundation, The California Endowment, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Foundation to Promote Open Society, and the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.

The New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) has found that workers in the region’s creative sector earn more than $17 billion per year and are a bigger slice of the regional economy than in other areas of the nation. Creative economy employees are also powering nearly every key sector in New England, from education to technology and science, and artistic fields that require an audience are stable or thriving, the report found. These are some of the finding s in NEFA’s new report: The Jobs in New England's Creative Economy and Why They Matter. As purchasing moves online, creative workers face more competition and less connection to the buyer. And the rise of the gig economy, where more people are self-employed, means many are living job to job, with stagnant wages, in need of affordable housing and health care. Because creative workers are such a big part of this region’s economy, any negative change has greater repercussions. New England’s payroll employment has increased by 2.9 percent since 2000, but payroll jobs at creative enterprises have declined by nearly 20 percent or more than 50,000 jobs, compared with a decline of 17 percent nationally during the same time. Says Cathy Edwards, executive director of NEFA. There is solid demand for creative goods and services, but it won’t stay that way if we don’t find new ways to support creative business, nonprofits, and solo artists and creatives who are such a foundational part of our economy and culture, defining where we want to live, work or vacation."

The Center for Performance and Civic Practice (CPCP) is a national resource for artists and communities working together to build civic health, equity and capacity. CPCP's The Catalyst Initiative supports place-based project teams comprised of an individual artist and a civic (community, non-profit, or municipal) partner to conceive and execute a small-scale local arts-based project created in response to an expressed need by the partner. Catalyst Initiative
 is now accepting applications for funding to support six (6) small-scale Civic Practice projects around the nation. Funding includes a stipend of $3500 for Artists and $1000 for the Civic Partner. The Initiative is interested in supporting the development of new projects, not existing ones. If you have a relationship with a community or municipal organization and are considering collaboration, but have not yet designed the project nor fully articulated goals, this may be a good match. This cohort demands an interest and commitment from both the civic partner and the artist. Our support structure and all cohort dialogues will actively include both the artist and partner. The application must include a letter of interest from the potential civic partner. We are especially interested in collaborations that expand collective thinking on community health. This is not limited to public health, health care or wellness, but rather acknowledges and supports the idea that a community's narrative of health depends on many intersecting factors, systems and issues. CPCP offers the cohort of artists and civic partners conceptual and process support throughout planning, implementation and evaluation of their projects. CPCP makes site-visits, convenes the cohort and supports documentation. Register here for an Informational Call, Sept 6 at 1pmApplication with all materials must be received by Fri. Sept. 15. Projects take place Jan - Sep, 2018. 

The Amphion Foundation, Inc., founded in 1987 by Elliott and Helen Carter, was established to encourage the performance of contemporary concert music, particularly by American composers, through support to performing and presenting organizations that have demonstrated sustained artistic excellence, in addition to service organizations.

As a part of its current initiative, Standing Together: The Humanities and the Experience of War, the National Endowment for the Humanities offers the Dialogues on the Experience of War program. The program supports the study and discussion of important humanities sources about war, in the belief that these sources can help U.S. military veterans and others to think more deeply about the issues raised by war and military service. The humanities sources can be drawn from history, philosophy, literature, and film—and they may and should be supplemented by testimonials from those who have served. The discussions are intended to promote serious exploration of important questions about the nature of duty, heroism, suffering, loyalty, and patriotism. The program awards grants of up to $100,000 that will support the recruitment and training of discussion leaders; and, following the training program, the convening of at least two discussion programs. The discussion programs can take place on college and university campuses, in veterans’ centers, at public libraries and museums, and at other community venues. Most of the participants in the discussion programs should be military veterans; others, such as men and women in active service, military families, and interested members of the public, may participate as well. See Resources and Guidelines.
