ACI is committed to the elucidation of inequities; as well as the celebration of culture, in the contemporary art world, so that we may collectively work towards justice, access and equity.
In the summer of 2017 ACI conducted Phase I of a baseline, mixed-methods inductive attitudinal study on the 'Cultural Equity Gap'. The study was supported by the SSRC Dissertation Development Program and UMass Boston, with funds from the Andrew Mellon Foundation.
Initial findings were shared with community stakeholders through 'preview parties', as well as extensive conference presentations. Community town halls, and intimate group sharing of the report, are held as requested.
Findings released electronically on 1/29/18, download the PDF report here.
In 2018 ACI will begin Phase II of the 'Cultural Equity Gap' study, focused on participatory action research focused on ALOC’s perspectives on leadership development, and levers of change for access, in the contemporary art world.
Results will be used for advocacy and awareness through publication and conference presentation, as well as for direct programmatic design and refinement.
