A New Standard for Arts and Culture Organizations Advancing Community Revitalization

This research article published by Grantmakers in the Arts is co-authored by Seth Beattie, Kresge Arts & Culture senior program officer, and Kim Zeuli, senior fellow at ICIC (Initiative for a Competitive Inner City). In the article, Beattie and Zeuli explore the anchor practices that could support cultural institutions grappling with how they account publicly for hiring, board and community practices; the underlying conditions necessary to make these investments meaningful; and the under-appreciated and underfunded work of African, Latinx, Arab, Asian, and Native American (ALAANA) cultural institutions. The authors aim to advance these conversations both within the arts and culture sector and in the broader community, and call more explicit attention to racial justice.
