About: Join the Dance/NYC Field-Wide Call on Thursday, May 18, 2023 from 4:00–5:00 p.m. on Zoom for a deep dive into actions to advance equity in arts funding and policy

Learn about: 

  • What’s at stake in the final rounds of city funding
  • What’s possible at the state level through S5714 and A4912, two New York State bills that will increase access to resources for culturally diverse arts and culture organizations
  • What’s on the horizon on the federal level 
  • ​And finally  how you can get involved in current efforts to advance diversity and equity in the arts and culture sector

The historic and chronic underinvestment of BIPOC, disabled, and immigrant arts workers and community-based cultural organizations has long perpetuated patterns of inequity in the arts and culture sector. Independent arts workers and small budget cultural organizations—a majority of the cultural sector and often led by and primarily serving underserved communities—continue to face systemic barriers to access to funding at the governmental and philanthropic levels. Dance, in particular, has been consistently the least funded of all performing arts. 

Join us to learn more about current efforts by advocates to advance equity in the arts and culture sector and how you can get involved.

Accessibility: CART captioning and ASL interpretation will be provided. Additional accessibility services are available upon request with registration up to 24 hours in advance of the meeting, or by emailing
