2019 Grantmakers in the Arts Conference Accepting Proposals

Grantmakers in the Arts is currently seeking session proposals for the 2019 GIA Conference in Denver, Colorado. The conference, which will take place Sunday, October 13 – Wednesday, October 16, 2019, is the largest annual convening of arts funders, and an opportunity for those in the field to learn from each other. 

Session proposals are now being accepted from GIA members.Grantmakers in the Arts will continue to foreground its funding focus areas: arts education, capitalization, racial equity, support for individual artists, and funding at the intersection of arts and other portfolios. We also encourage session proposals that explore Dr. KimberlĂ© Crenshaw’s concept of intersectionality – exploring the impact of overlaps between identities such as between race, gender, sexuality, disability, and others such as discussions of the #MeToo, Black Lives Matter, Just Transition movements and how they manifest in the field of arts and cultural funding.
