Event Description

The Art of Justice 2
Articulating an Ethos and Aesthetic of the Movement

An InterActive Presentation/Conversation

The Art of Justice 2 convening is focused on examining how the valuing of aesthetic production, culture and race has impacted financial investment in organizations of color and social justice arts. While discussions of the problem of “diversity” in the arts have again resurfaced, persistent disparities in funding, access, and employment for certain groups oblige us to consider the deeper structural causes fueling patterns of inequity and underrepresentation as well as the under-resourcing of the institutions that support them.

The objective is to focus on the roots of inequity in the arts with the intent of recommending constructive actions and methods of creating equity now and in the future, while also affirming the importance of sustaining community based organizations that reflect the cultural diversity and art forms that our international communities bring to the creative vibrancy of New York City.

Speakers include policymakers, researchers, scholars, cultural activists that are fully engaged in assuring the equitable representation of the varied creative cultural and racial mix that make New York City a model for the rest of the nation.
