We Take Care of We: Creating Financial Liberation for Black Art Institutions

  • Weeksville Heritage Center 158 Buffalo Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11213 United States (map)

Produced in partnership with ALL ARTS and the ALL ARTS TALKS, this conversation aims to reflect on the systemic exclusion of Black Americans from financial institutions and the ripple effect that has caused in philanthropic donations to modern Black art institutions. How can Black institutions educate the community in the realm of philanthropy to build wealth? What stands in the way of growth for these institutions? How do we sustain spaces for Black artists and cultural workers to thrive and be supported by their community?

Join us for a public conversation with cultural leaders engaged in groundbreaking and critical work in the field. Let’s design a future of financial liberation for Black art and cultural institutions where we take care of we.
