The Overlooked Anchors: Advancing a New Standard of Practice for Arts and Culture Organizations to Create Equitable Opportunity in America’s Cities

This report introduces a framework – with examples
drawn from arts and culture organizations – that strategically leverages organizational operations for community development. It is primarily a call to action for arts and culture organizations and their funders. We hope city leaders, community and economic development practitioners and the anchor field will also pick up the report – to change their perspective and start to consider arts and culture organizations as anchor institutions alongside hospitals, universities and corporations.
