Who's Going to Take the Weight?: Women of Color in Non-Profit Arts Leadership and the Struggle Towards Racial Equity at Facing Race
As of late, women of color have been heralded for their ability to reactivate consciousness and change the field. And while they are often championed for their inventiveness, experience and multi-layered perspectives, they are also often driven into professional corners where their unique points of view can become occupational deficits.
This workshop will focus on the types of financial resources artists need to sustain their practice – including fundraising and fiscal sponsorship, as well as finding, researching and applying for these different types of opportunities.
Work shouldn’t suck.

Come to this workshop to learn about another alternative: fiscal sponsorship!

This means more perks— access to charitable donations, grants, tax exempt status— and less paperwork.
While women prominently lead arts institutions and attain various levels of power, they are not immune to the societal systems of patriarchy and white supremacy. So how do female arts leaders view their own relationship to power and privilege?
