Dancing my Blues Away, work by Tori Weston

BIPOC 2022

You are here

During the Fall 2020 while COVID was raging and the desire to be reflective about how arts resources reach the community, the Arts Council developed a local Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) support initiative. Since then, we have released over $261,000 to the BIPOC community in forms of fellowships and project grants. Please see below some of the outcomes from this support.

Open Call for BIPOC artists and producers:
In 2022, we launched a Pop-up series at the Armory Building for local BIPOC artists to help support programming and provide temporary space to that community. This initiative aims to provide a safe and vibrant space to be led by artists of color. The desire is for this space to be utilized as a way for all of the community to connect with each other through the arts. The space is intended for artists of all ages and levels to find support and growth -- an encouraging and community-driven space.  This space features new curators and concepts on a rotational basis.
