Affiliates

Interest Groups

The Arts Institute supports and develops its community through Interest Groups, a flexible structure in which affiliates may converge around a shared interest or activity such as a collaborative grant, a research project, a creative or community-based activity, experimental initiatives, or any topic of shared concern across the arts.

By increasing the possible points of contact and connection, interest groups will encourage broader affiliate engagement with the division and with each other. This open-ended structure will better harness the energy of affiliates to achieve real action and momentum in key issues and areas impacting the arts.
