What would it take to imagine a radical society where people are able to exercise their freedom to move and their freedom to stay? What does that culture look like? How does imagining such a time and place inspire us to take steps toward making that a reality for artists and beyond?
Join GCIR as we co-host alongside Grantmakers in the Arts (GIA) a webinar that dares funders to imagine what is possible and moves them to take action. This program will cover:
- The power of storytelling to shift and build narratives, and how artists are at the helm of this work;
- Common misconceptions and narratives within, and about, newcomer communities and beyond; and
- Ways arts funders can be more nuanced in their support of narrative shift and narrative change with an immigrant justice lens.
Live captioning will be available in English throughout the webinar. For additional accommodation requests, please contact GIA Senior Program Manager Sherylynn Sealy, at least three (3) business days prior to the event.
