Artists Respond Informational Webinar

RUX has shown that arts create the conditions to open minds, listen, and overcome bias. Today, we are excited to launch a new opportunity to support artists to do this work in their own communities, in partnership with the Creative Change Coalition, a new national coalition (led by Springboard for the Arts) of place-based organizations that center people, creativity, and equity working together to create a stronger ecosystem for communities and artists.

Artists Respond: Community, Culture, and Commonality in the Commonwealth will offer grants for up to ten artists and/or teams to develop creative work that addresses rural-urban connection, interdependence, or solidarity in Kentucky. We aim for this work to uplift the power of arts and culture to address problems and combat a national narrative that too often centers on division and divide, especially in election years.

Applications open on June 24, and will close on July 22. Learn more and apply on the KY RUX website.
