Communities are seeking Forecast’s help in moving from intention to action to support BIPOC artists, listen deeply to their members’ wants and needs, and change outdated public art policies and practices.
Desire has skyrocketed for new approaches to address inequities in public art and monuments and our phone has been ringing. While overall demand to do this work is growing, the resources to undertake it are scarce in many communities where it’s most needed.
It has become increasingly difficult for Forecast to turn away the many neighborhood organizations, arts administrators, artists, community organizers, and others reaching out to our team for help navigating racial justice in their public art programs. With your help, we won’t have to!
With this fund, Forecast will provide much needed guidance, coaching, and technical assistance to artists and communities as they undertake the complex task of confronting racial inequities in public art and monuments and creating new, inclusive representations of their public stories and memory.
