This four-session web conference series from Grantmakers in the Arts explores practices used to advance racial equity in arts grantmaking, specifically focusing on the various practice components of the grant cycle. Every funder is different, and there is not a one-size-fits-all set of practices that will eliminate biases and inequitable outcomes. There are, however, many funders in our field using or piloting practices designed to mitigate biases and lower applicant barriers. This series will feature examples from public, private, and intermediary grantmakers that we hope will offer inspiration for other grantmakers examining their own assumptions and practices.
