About This Episode

A podcast about the role of arts and philanthropy in moments of crisis. Together with community artists, scholars, and funders we consider key questions: what value does society place on the arts during crises, and how does this shape philanthropic responses? What lessons about resilience, funding, and survival does the arts community teach the philanthropic sector, and us all, as we imagine and create “new normals” post COVID-19?
