PACE Webinar: ‘Trend or Tipping Point: Arts and Social Change Grantmaking’
Monday, March 21, 2011

Space is limited.
Reserve your Webinar seat now at:

Across sectors, artists and arts organizations are increasingly being called
upon to activate the social imagination, motivate civic participation,
broaden who has voice, ground grassroots organizing, and lend inspirational
images, messages, and meaning to catalyze and sustain the work of community
development, civic engagement, and movement building.  Join us to discuss
findings of the recent report, Trend or Tipping Point: Arts & Social Change
Grantmaking.  Released by Americans for the Arts Animating Democracy
program, the report assembles a first-time portrait of arts and social
change funders, and others supporting civic engagement and social change
through arts and cultural strategies.

Animating Democracy co-directors Barbara Schaffer Bacon and Pam Korza will
offer an overview of the range of funders supporting this work, how
grantmakers think about community, civic, and social change in the context
of agency goals, and what outcomes they are looking for through their
support. Whether exploring or affirming your place in supporting ?arts for
change,? this webinar can inform planning conversations, program design,
and assessment interests.  Learn, too, about related resources from
Animating Democracy?s full Arts & Social Change Mapping Initiative.

Barbara Schaffer Bacon and Pam Korza co-direct Animating Democracy, a
program of Americans for the Arts that inspires, informs, promotes, and
connects arts and culture as potent contributors to community, civic, and
social change. John Esterle, the Executive Director of The Whitman Institute
and a member of the PACE board, will introduce and facilitate the webinar.

The Trend or Tipping Point study is supported by the Nathan Cummings
Foundation, CrossCurrents Foundation, Open Society Foundations, Lambent
Foundation, and Surdna Foundation.
