BIG NEWS – Upstream Arts is honored to be one of sixteen organizations selected to participate in the Bush Foundation’s brand new Community Creativity Cohort! The Cohort is a one-time program designed to both recognize and learn from exemplary organizations that meaningfully engage people in the arts and integrate the arts into public life.
The organizations selected to participate in the Cohort will each receive an unrestricted grant of $100,000. In addition, the Cohort will work with the Foundation over the next six months to articulate the challenges and opportunities associated with their work, particularly around efforts to engage the community, build and support leadership, and advance racial and economic equity. The insights from this effort will help inform the Foundation’s future work in the arts. We’re thrilled beyond words to be part of this important work!
