Forecast offers pro bono public art consulting services in BIPOC communities, rural communities, and Native nations as these communities have historically been under-resourced.
In 2020, we responded to the pandemic by quickly offering pro bono consulting to over 150 artists and community leaders in every region of the country and Puerto Rico. We are currently providing pro bono services to a community group to share the history of Black residents in their rural city. And, in 2019, we offered training free of charge to artists on the Pine Ridge Reservation.
With your support we will build a Public Art for Racial Justice Fund to expand our pro bono public art consulting with a focus on reaching more groups working for racial justice in their communities.
We are committed to being part of creative solutions that drive equitable outcomes. To drive positive change, we want to help even more communities harness our knowledge of equitable public art practices. This work is urgent and it cannot take a backseat in this time of crisis in our country.
