Racial Equity, Arts and Culture

Racial Equity, Arts and Culture


The Racial Equity, Arts and Culture Transdisciplinary Core fosters critical dialogue about and develops mechanisms for advancing the fair treatment of people of all races in and through arts and culture. The team’s work includes fairness in opportunities (e.g., educational, financial, professional, etc.) among artists and cultural producers and organizations, and fairness in opportunities for the public to engage in arts and cultural activities that they have reason to value and/or that has potential to create social change.

The core will engage faculty and students in efforts to help improve the local arts infrastructure from an equity lens; develop mechanisms for providing technical assistance to local artists and organizations advancing work aligned with the core’s mission; and work to implement the cultural equity-oriented recommendations from the 2009 Greater Richmond Cultural Action Plan.
