What do batik dying, Chinese acrobatic dance, Native youth theatre, and Japanese-American storytelling have in common? They are all art forms supported by ArtsFund's Multicultural Arts Project. In January 2017, ArtsFund awarded a total of $60,000 in grants to twelve arts and cultural organizations as part of this pilot initiative.
On Monday, February 13 ArtsFund hosted "Setting the Table for More Diverse Board Leadership," filling the KEXP Gathering Space with nearly 100 people to hear a panel discussion and network with arts and cultural organizations.
