Our Conversation

Following the Livestream, DC chapter members had a critical discussion about how art can support local development. This conversation centered on:

  • The commitment art institutions must have to their local city, an example being art museums listing local culinary options rather than having their own internal dining
  • The need for arts organizations to learn how to invite in local communities who have not seen arts institutions as places where they are welcome
  • Two DC organizations attempting to cultivate local art; our host Hamiltonian Gallery, and Halcyon Arts Lab
