New report out: “Solidarity Not Charity: Arts & Culture Grantmaking in the Solidarity Economy”

Written by Nati Linares & Caroline Woolard, “Solidarity Not Charity” is about the ways that arts and culture grantmakers can engage in systems-change work that addresses root causes rather than symptoms of cultural inequity. At 100 pages long, we hope artists, culture workers and organizers can also use the resources and connect with the community.

No one knows what arts and culture will look like after the pandemic

63 percent of creatives have become fully unemployed.

⅓ of museums say they are likely to close forever.

The COVID-19 death rate of Black and Indigenous people is more than twice the COVID-19 death rate of White people in the US.

And yet, foundation giving in 2020 documented that only 5 percent of pandemic-response dollars were intended for communities of color.

Around ½ of 1 percent of annual foundation giving directly supports women and girls of color.

And less than ½ of 1 percent goes to Native Americans.

What would the cultural economy be like if it loved Black and Indigenous and poor people?

This report is about the ways that arts and culture grantmakers can engage in systems-change work that addresses root causes rather than symptoms of cultural inequity.

The cultural sector is actively seeking alternatives to business-as-usual to create economic and racial justice in the sector and beyond. Grantmakers can play a role in the transformation of the sector by following the lead of BIPOC creatives who are innovating models for self-determination and community wealth.

This work is part of an emergent movement in the United States that is known globally as the Solidarity Economy (SE).
