This chapter of “Beyond Survival” addresses concrete models for supporting the arts. Both identifying emerging practices and revisiting programs of the past, these responses emphasize the need for an underlying commitment to socially relevant art that maintains ongoing reevaluation of the sites and structures of its production.
- Virginia Maksymowicz and Blaise Tobia, “A Model for Arts Funding”
- Jules Rochielle Sievert, “Meaningful Transformation”
- Patricia Nguyen, “A Call for Public Funding and Imagining Beyond the Nonprofit Industrial Complex”
- Thomas Vannatter, “Interstitial artspace: thriving in hostile environments”
- Nancy Zastudil, “Self-Directed: A Crash Course in Opening (and Closing) a Gallery”
The following essays are part of “Beyond Survival: Public Support for the Arts and Humanities,” a call for reflections on and provocation about the precarious state of arts funding after decades of neoliberal economics and the long culture wars.
