  5. Optional: NEFA values an equitable, diverse, and inclusive world, which we interpret as all people having fair access to the tools and resources they need to realize creative and community endeavors. We acknowledge structural inequities that have excluded individuals and communities from opportunity based on race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, class, age, and geography, and strive to counter those inequities in our work.

    The Public Art Learning Fund intends to prioritize equity in funding opportunities and better understand the barriers to access for artists in New England. Please share if you've experienced barriers to access and how this resource may counter those experiences. (3,500-character limit) 


    In addition to your written response to this question, you may also choose to submit a short video (up to three minutes in total) to share any additional information you think would be important to fairly assess your application.
