Building Equity Project Programs
Building Equity for Immigrant, Indigenous and Native American Artists is a pilot program from JCAL. Supported by a grant from New York Community Trust, it is dedicated to researching, engaging and promoting underrepresented artists in our community, and to providing greater access for audiences to see and to experience their work.
Recent programs include 500 Years & Counting: The East Coast Blind Spot; Indigenous Peoples of the Caribbean: A Focus on the Taíno; Puerto Rico Update with Prolibertad; and Film & Music: Sounds of Siberia. All the recordings of these live-streamed events are available on our Youtube channel.
