MAPPING A FUTURE FOR ARTS ENTITIES FOUNDED AND LED BY BLACK, INDIGENOUS, LATINX, ASIAN, PACIFIC ISLANDER, MIDDLE EASTERN, AND ALL PEOPLE OF COLOR IN NEW YORK CITY
ABOUT THE PROJECT
This project was initiated by Museum Hue, The Laundromat Project, and Hester Street. They collectively conceptualized and designed it in response to the needs they experienced and observed in the arts sector; and then sought joint funding. The partners recognize the vast diversity of arts entities that focus on vast artistic mediums (visual arts, theater, literary arts, dance, art, music, film, and more). The result of this project is a digital map that begins to capture the arts entities and provides resources to support further conversation with philanthropy and other funders. We will continue to gather resources to include additional POC arts entities in the future.
HueArts NYC is also a call to action. The community-informed brown paper featured on this site, offers findings from our research and clear recommendations for more in depth studies and funding to ensure the long-term stability and sustainability of arts entities founded and led by Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, and all People of Color.
