3. We have experienced a global shift in the way that we live, work and create over the past couple of years. Much has changed even in the year since we were last in this space. What shifts have you seen /are you seeing in the field that are providing opportunities for BIPOC artists and arts organizations to thrive and experience abundance?
Monique Martin

Thank you Derek. Can you all talk about the lack of mentorship and community within the PWI where POC's have been hired? What are some steps toward correcting this?
Dr. Durell Cooper
01:23:11
4. We know that the funding community’s relationship with BIPOC communities has been challenging but are there examples where you’ve seen authentic responsive relationships emerge? And what has that looked like?
Dr. Durell Cooper
01:29:57
5. So much of the research including yours highlights the importance of multi-year investments in organizational planning and growth. What are some strategies BIPOC organizations or independent artists could use to encourage donors to sustain current programming and/or invest in the “Big Idea” or long-term projects?

How are we cultivating high earning POC's to invest in our institutions? Are there already examples of this?
Dr. Durell Cooper
01:40:38
6. What are some ways funders are prioritizing access and equity through policies, grant guidelines, or new innovative mechanisms particularly as a way to grow access to programs and agencies that have been outside of their traditional funding pool?
Dr. Durell Cooper
01:43:09
As they should!
Dr. Durell Cooper

Can you all talk about the lack of mentorship and community within the PWI where POC's have been hired? What are some steps toward correcting this?

Kaisha Johnson
01:53:34
Forgot to hit send! —I appreciate funders offering new systems that pay BIPOC orgs for their labor in the grant application process, but why create the extra labor for Black and brown organizations in the first place? Why don't we just continuously advocate for the removal of the barriers that create that labor for Black and brown folks? I think the arduous processes that funders create for folx of color also create an unspoken, unconscious, and often damaging “affirmation” that the BIPOC folx that “put in the work" and “made the cut” are more "worthy” further creating more division within Black and brown communities. It boils down to trusting Black people and trusting Black-led organizations.
Dr. Durell Cooper
01:54:02
Yes, Kaisha!!!!!
