March 28, 2024 – Please Join “A Road Together” (ART) Webinar

***A message from Field Foundation Arts Program Officer, Richard Tran***
Dear Partners and Friends –

On behalf of the Field Foundation, and in partnership with the MacArthur Foundation, I am pleased to invite you to join us for an informational webinar on Thursday, March 28, from 11:00am to 12:00pm to launch the second year of A Road Together (ART)—our arts grantmaking program for small and mid-sized arts and culture organizations with a strong commitment to equity that is both reflective and inclusive of Chicago’s diverse and historically underserved communities.

During the webinar, Field and MacArthur representatives will describe our aspiration, working together with ARTgrantees, to make a sustainable impact in advancing racial equity by enabling more Chicagoans to dream and flourish while accessing platforms for art and cultural expression. We will share details about the program, including eligibility criteria, the application process, and the program timeline. We will also have time for Q&A, and you can send us your questions in advance.

Use the link below to register for the webinar. Please also feel free to share this invitation with other organizations that may be interested. Our goal is to provide as much information as possible ahead of the application portal opening on Monday, April 15.  

We look forward to our conversations about A Road Together and the many possibilities to shape a more creative, just, and equitable Chicago.
