Artist Autonomy, not Philanthropy

Today: I don’t trust government. I don’t trust philanthropy. Different people get in positions of power and everything shifts. That’s part of why the nonprofit structure is always being interrogated, because it is a structure, about, it’s built on charity.

The Vision: If our arts and culture sector had an accessible and resilient funding infrastructure, we would build autonomy for artists and arts organizations. If artists have autonomy over their own money, then they can make their own decisions about what happens.
