Join Candid’s panel of prominent national and regional arts funders for a lively discussion of how grantmakers are reimagining institutional funding during an ongoing global pandemic and a society-wide racial justice movement. The presenters will discuss their impact through grantmaking and address the following questions:

  • How are arts funders taking action in the face of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and racial injustice?
  • How are grantmakers and nonprofits collaborating during today’s crises? 
  • What have you learned as you’ve pivoted to address these challenges? 

Learn more about our Arts Month events.
