ArtsForward was inspired by the intensive exchanges that emerged during the pandemic among peers and working groups in the arts field. The program aimed to build and reinforce a sustainable arts ecosystem with business practices that respected artists and supported presenters. ArtsForward included grants, learning, and resources to underscore and enhance the interdependence and safety of all those involved in performance engagements.
Selected by a panel of experts in the performing arts field, the 47 funded collaborations support a variety of presenting organizations, a diverse array of artists, and a broad range of approaches to reopening. They include emerging artists who are finding their voice as well as established artists passing on their traditions. Among the 47 partnerships are presenters with a range of budget sizes, working independently as well as within colleges, universities, museums, and other larger institutions.
