ILI Partners Announce $5 Million
Crisis Relief Grants for Arts & Culture Leaders
Five organizations receive funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to re-grant to artists, culture bearers and other arts practitioners in the face of economic crisis.
8/27/20 – The Partners of the Intercultural Leadership Institute announced today the launch of a $5 Million Crisis Relief Grants program funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The one-year funding will be distributed among the organizations Alternate ROOTS, First Peoples Fund, National Association of Latino Arts & Cultures, PA’I Foundation and Sipp Culture to directly re-grant within the communities each non-profit organization supports.
As the new year proceeds, and as I look towards a year of arts, culture, and all that those things encompass, I move forward knowing there is still much more to do. Combining social justice and creativity has been a testament to my relentless fire to form relationships and co conspire as a change agent.
