| DEAR CREATIVE PILLARS |
Position your organization to be the bridge between artists +
To the culture workers and creative pillars,
We know that you’ve done the work, paved many pathways and that you’re changing the lives of people of color in our community. You are our gathering place for creative expression and, oftentimes, a beacon of light and a safe space for the marginalized. You are the storytellers and historians of black arts and culture in Pittsburgh. And yet, you haven’t received your flowers.
Perhaps your organization is not operating efficiently or it’s not receiving appropriate funding. Maybe your growth is stagnant or you find that it’s been a struggle to keep your doors open. Whatever the case, we’re prepared to develop strategies and culturally relevant solutions. We believe lack of equity, uneven distribution of, and access to resources, meritocracy and gatekeeping have all hindered your growth, not simply effort or need. Let us help you address your areas of need, create solutions with impact, build towards sustainability and enter into the era of prosperity you deserve.
