Artists at Work
What does it take to make art possible—and support the artists who create it? The Covid-19 pandemic hit the creative sector hard, and laid bare longstanding needs in the field. Please join us for a conversation with three arts leaders who will each share their own experiences, discuss how their work addresses issues including artists’ rights and racial equity, and explore the kinds of resources and structures needed to support the field. This program is cosponsored by Springboard for the Arts and will highlight insights from the American Academy’s Commission on the Arts, which is focused on uplifting the arts in a diverse 21st century American democracy.
