DONATE TODAY // OUR WORK DEPENDS ON YOUR SUPPORT
Join us in creating real, responsive changes to public art policies and practices that advance justice, health, and human dignity in communities across the U.S.
Forecast is committed to leveraging public art to advance justice, health, and human dignity. Thanks to supporters like you, our team is growing, our programs are expanding, and our impact is deepening.
We are grateful to be harnessing this growth to provide ever better support to communities across the nation as they utilize inclusive and equitable public art practices to address pressing issues and share local stories.
We need your support to continue this incredible momentum. Donate today and help us undertake the following this year:
- Kick off our nationwide listening tour engaging communities of color in conversations that reimagine public art and monuments to reflect hidden stories, visions, cultures, and perspectives.
- Support over 350 artists with resources and opportunities to work in public, create partnerships, and advance their public art careers, with emphasis on expanding access for BIPOC and womxn artists.
- Expand our new Public Art for Racial Justice Fund—providing support to more projects like that of Building Remembrance For Reconciliation, a group of community organizers in Hastings, MN engaging their community around sharing the stories of Black settlers in the area and commemorating an historic Black church that was burned down as an act of arson.
- Host a national training program to prepare BIPOC artists/professionals to become the public art consultants of the future.
- Share new research on Indigenous visibility in public art with our 2022 Change Lab Research Fellow Jessica Mehta.
- Address the crisis in affordable housing and the role that artists can play in a new issue and series of public programs through our free, digital FORWARD publication.
- Provide training to over 150 artists and public art decision makers (planners, government administrators, real estate developers, and more) to help them gain the skills for successful and equitable public art practice.
We’re counting on you!
Please give today and join forces with others who believe in the power of equitable public art to foster a better and more just world.
