This webinar covers the racist history of Philanthropy, the Non-Profit Industrial Complex, and the toxic culture of liberal niceties contained within. Uplifting the voices of INCITE and others from their book “The Revolution Will Not Be Funded” and our own experiences at Access Philanthropy working as a bridge between Foundations and Nonprofits, we hope to lay bare the inner workings and ideology that make up the philanthropic system. The pillars of this system are rooted in white supremacy and must be recognized and challenged in order to imagine a new organizational survival ecology that is truly just. This webinar seeks to be a contextual and informational tool in the service of bridging the gaps between our current system and a new future. There will be a brief Q & A at the end of the session.
We acknowledge the significant past and ongoing labor by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) arts groups, arts administrators, and artists to dismantle oppressive practices and systems within our performing arts community, and we seek to complement, highlight, and support this work as we move forward.
The title of this session pays homage to Angela Y. Davis's 2003 work "Are Prisons Obsolete?" which invites us to imagine a more just future.
