Creativity and cultural production Arts access and participation The Foundation aims to shift the map of neighborhood arts assets and access points by supporting efforts to strengthen arts presenting, engagement and non-curricular instruction capacity at or in partnership with neighborhood-based arts organizations that predominantly serve low income or culturally specific communities. We will invest in high quality arts access and opportunities for active arts participation in communities that have historically experienced the greatest socio-economic barriers to sustained engagement. We also welcome research and evidence-based initiatives that seek to better understand the impact of arts access on individual life and community outcomes. While the emphasis on staff and professional development continues, there will also be a focus on preparing communities of color for in-demand arts and culture occupations.
