The Broadway Advocacy Coalition
The Broadway Advocacy Coalition builds the capacity of individuals, organizations, and communities to dismantle the systems that perpetuate racism through the power of storytelling and the leadership of people directly affected. Founded in 2016 by members of the Broadway community as a direct response to the nation’s pandemic of racism and police brutality, it has since grown into a multi-disciplinary organization uniting artists with legal experts and community leaders to have a lasting impact on policy issues including criminal justice reform, education equity, and immigration.
BAC Announces Inaugural Artivism Fellowship
The opportunity has been “created to support artist-activists using their tools to have an impact on the world around them,” the application reads. Through financial assistance, mentorship, opportunities for networking, and various workshops, the fellowship is intended to nurture “artist-activists focused on issues related to systemic racism and criminal justice reform, and using narrative or stories in their work.”
BAC collaborates with organizations on the ground, listens to their needs and goals, and works together to craft a strategy to best mobilize and integrate the arts into their work.
