We published their names here because for 8 months in 2020, their names were not announced or celebrated despite being awarded the grant in late December of 2019. Since then Houston Arts Alliance has taken the step to publish their names in recognition.
We also mourn the lack of funding to provide similar opportunities to as many individuals in the year 2021 as there was no cycle announced due to the pandemic and lack of financial planning despite Houston’s disaster prone status. The next Houston Arts Alliance Support for Artists and Creative Individuals cycle begins in August 2021.
If you are an artist/art lover/concerned community member, we ask that you support Arts Accountability Houston’s efforts to work towards robust and equitable public funding for the arts in Houston. Access to the arts for all should be a right, not a privilege.
