In 2015 we launched a paid Fellowship for 12 artists, arts organizations, and arts managers. Our most ambitious project to date, Field Leadership Fund (FLF) focused on offering professional development, compensation, and access to those who faced barriers to their advancement based on race, gender, and other identities.
The Fellows completed their work in April 2017, and The Field went straight into research mode to see what worked, what didn't, and where to go from here. One year later, we are thrilled to share with you our findings in our latest publication, Intention, Accountability and Equity: Lessons from Field Leadership Fund, an Emerging Arts Fellowship. Learn more about FLF below, and sign up for our mailing list for updates!
Special thanks to FLF Project Manager Rajeeyah Finnie-Myers and to Research & Evaluation Consultant Chikako Yamauchi.
