A Case Study for PSOs to Invest in the Arts, Culture, and Narrative Change

Arts and culture shape ideas and behavior. Artists and culture strategists create fertile ground for policy and narrative change. As a PSO, you might have advised funders to invest in the arts but have you done it yourself? Why and how should PSOs be part of building connectivity and experimental development of cultural power where art and social justice meet? In 2021, SoCal Grantmakers celebrated Juneteenth with a 10-day virtual art festival, created a new Equity, Arts, and Culture team, and commissioned digital illustrations from BIPOC artists. Join the SCG team and local Seattle artist Stacy Nguyen to discuss the role of artists in changing dominant narratives of white supremacy and the case for PSO to have a cultural strategy.
