Creative Economy Meeting June 11

Creative Economy Meeting June 11, 2020

Virtual Creative Economy meeting  with community leaders and creatives on the Black Lives Matter movement and what work needs to get done to help advance their progress. We will discuss new projects being proposed to help the creative community and what funding is on the table (20 million) that if we don’t act – it will go elsewhere.

This is a supporting, kind, inclusive and active meeting. Free for all to attend.

To help get those 20 million into the creative sector please add your voice here – Advocacy

This is an honest, supportive and important conversation around systemic racism and its impact on black individuals and communities of color, and a discussion on what we can do to dismantle the systems, and bring in a new paradigm.

17:53:47 From CERVANTES  To  All Panelists : Simona Hernandez is a local artist who does great work and has good ideas…

17:54:09 From Richard Falcon  To  All Panelists : Historically, funding from the city and county for arts organizations of color has been inequitable. The larger organizations have received the lion share since they are owned by or heavily invested by the City. Part of the work of the cultural equity task force was to correct that. Now with this $20M there is a chance to make certain there is equity in the disbursement of this funding. We need to be certain the percentage of dollars invested reflect the population served by those arts organizations.

17:54:30 From Deborah Hunt  To  CERVANTES and  All Panelists : Cervantes-if you can give us her contact info we will reach out to her. Thanks

17:56:18 From Speedy  To  All Panelists : Early in the day, Eric? Or early when the public occurrence is happening, so be timely? I think oyou are answering it now

17:56:25 From ARTners  To  All Panelists : 1.5 years we have been working to get through to Steve Hansen’s office.

17:56:25 From CERVANTES  To  All Panelists : I’ll get back to you and I’ll give you a list of people who could use support and are supportive of BLM and other Sacto activities and do good work and may be able to broaden art/artwork in varied ways.

17:56:45 From Deborah Hunt  To  CERVANTES and  All Panelists : That would be wonderful. Thank you.

18:03:54 From Jamila Khan Roughani  To  All Panelists : Sounds good. Thank you!

18:04:12 From Deborah Hunt  To  Jamila Khan Roughani and  All Panelists : Any time and thanks for joining the conversation 🙂

18:05:52 From melanie weir  To  All Panelists : This is a great idea. Pay creatives for sound bites!

18:05:56 From Ray  Gargano  To  All Panelists : It’s 98

18:06:31 From Sunni Harley : Why are we hiding who’s on the line?

18:08:10 From Ed Fletcher  To  All Panelists : peg channel access sac would be happy to run it

18:08:15 From Deborah Hunt  To  AC and  All Panelists : AC-Do you have a question?

18:08:33 From AC  To  All Panelists : yes

18:08:43 From AC  To  All Panelists : curious about the nonprofit receiving the content

18:08:44 From Deborah Hunt  To  AC and  All Panelists : What is the question?

18:08:57 From AC  To  All Panelists : will their be public access or do we we choose a specific org

18:08:59 From Richard Falcon  To  All Panelists : Who are those who make the decision as to what gets selected for content? Many artists are technically challenged.

18:09:07 From Ray  Gargano  To  Sunni Harley and  All Panelists : This is set up as a webinar, so only the panel is visible. Is that what you mean, Sunni?

18:10:04 From Maya Wallace  To  All Panelists : I want to say that we should not lose sight of the need to elevate the value of artists’ work. something about boards for change that makes me uncomfortable is that it doesn’t center Black artists, given the moment, doesn’t pay them, and then raises funds for disadvantaged kids. I appreciate the sentiment, but its largely a charitable endeavor instead of pushing dialogue in the community. Artists are exploited for charity all the time. let’s not continue the practice. 

18:10:10 From Marianne Gonzales Sacramento, CA  To  All Panelists : I love all these ideas!  Please let me know how CREAtE District 6 can help.

18:10:17 From Michael M : who is talking?

18:11:51 From Sunni Harley : Yes. Thank you Ray.

18:12:49 From marieacosta  To  All Panelists : Ray, Will the $20M be given out in an equitable panel process?

18:13:38 From marieacosta  To  All Panelists : All $20M is going though metro arts?

18:13:54 From Maya Wallace  To  All Panelists : here is a link to information re: the race & cultural equity statement and task force: https://arts.cityofsacramento.org/About-Us/CEStatement

18:14:15 From Carissa Gutierrez : In addition to guaranteeing an equitable approach to distribution, I’d like to see greater transparency around who is on the commission, process for application and support for arts community members to navigate through the grants application.

18:14:42 From Qinqin Liu  To  All Panelists : Hi Ray… I like the diversity and equity ideas and How can I be engaged and contribute; Qinqin (drqliu@yahoo.com)

18:14:52 From Aliyah Sidqe  To  All Panelists : yeeeeeesss!

18:15:18 From Marianne Gonzales Sacramento, CA  To  All Panelists : Excellent point and question Shira!

18:15:25 From AC  To  All Panelists : How is the panel selected? is there opportunity for community members, or artist not submitting an application to participate?

18:17:48 From Maya Wallace  To  All Panelists : carissa it’s all public – I try to share but it’s organize by panel. 

18:18:03 From Maya Wallace  To  All Panelists : mina, they are

18:18:03 From Hp  To  All Panelists : Talent Magazines has never been given a  seat at the table, even though we publish 60 magazines monthly and have featured 350,000 artists nationwide.  What does this say about the systemic problems in Sacramento.

18:18:05 From Laura Anthony (Artists of Sacramento)  To  All Panelists : YES CARISSA

18:18:21 From Laura Anthony (Artists of Sacramento) : YES CARISSA!

18:19:36 From Richard Falcon : Re posting this:     Historically, funding from the city and county for arts organizations of color has been inequitable. The larger organizations have received the lion share since they are owned by or heavily invested by the City. Part of the work of the cultural equity task force was to correct that. Now with this $20M there is a chance to make certain there is equity in the disbursement of this funding. We need to be certain the percentage of dollars invested reflect the population served by those arts organizations.

18:19:57 From CLARA Studios : Point of clarification – EXPENSES for COVID-related activities rather than LOSSES due to COVID, right?

18:24:56 From Duckee   To  All Panelists : Please fill out this form everyone. Quick 5 minutes. Make a difference in the art scene. 

18:24:58 From AC  To  All Panelists : Clarifying intention regarding asking about losses – is the intention to reimburse artists for money lost, to advocate for why funding is need…

18:25:00 From Carissa Gutierrez : Truth is the arts community HAS been in need. Collectively we can be more creative about the way those funds are distributed

18:25:24 From Laura Anthony (Artists of Sacramento) : *snaps* to carissa

18:25:37 From Maya Wallace : I’m signing off. great meeting peeps.

18:27:59 From aly (she/her)  To  All Panelists : * snaps * thank you, Duckee

18:29:11 From Hp  To  All Panelists : I don’t want to see marginalized artists being used as tokens and that is traditionally how Sacramento exploits our artists. Our leaders organize artists but there is no impact in the community.

18:29:11 From marieacosta  To  All Panelists : Thanks for your comment Richard. Perhaps we need to host a zoom meeting to discuss.

18:29:47 From Hp  To  All Panelists : lip service

18:29:48 From Adrian Perez  To  All Panelists : Can we get an apolitical body to co-manage the funds?

18:30:32 From Andrew Kehoe : Here is a link to the appointed members of the Creative Economy and Arts Commission: https://sacramento.granicus.com/boards/w/1bf6f42dcf77babf/boards/32780

18:30:58 From Dave  To  All Panelists : Statements are fine what grass roots actions can be facilitated. To  make the changes more lasting.

18:31:02 From DIANE : Nearly each neighborhood has a Neighborhood Association (the list of which I linked.) I was thinking that either Ray or Shira or whomever is most appropriate, use the list to send information for distribution to the residents in their areas

18:31:52 From Deborah Hunt  To  DIANE and  All Panelists : I have the list and we will definitely do that. Thanks for sharing

18:31:54 From CLARA Studios : Organizations can also join the Metro Arts mailing list — all grant opportunities get blasted out through the mailing list as well.

18:32:34 From Carissa Gutierrez : Thank you!

18:33:09 From Melissa Cirone : Please contact me at Melissa Cirone if you work in arts education or community arts programming Melissa Cirone at mcirone@cityofsacramento.org

18:33:19 From Ray  Gargano : Ray Gargano, Office of Arts and Culture: rgargano@cityofsacramento.org

18:34:37 From Monsters are Messy  To  All Panelists : where is the information for the mentoring and grant writing assistance found?

18:34:37 From CLARA Studios : @Diane — I am a huge fan of your idea, except that I recently emailed every single one of the neighborhood associations on that list asking them to blast out a project of mine…results were meh. I think a social media campaign is more likely to get info where it needs to be…

18:35:01 From aly (she/her)  To  All Panelists : I love all the efforts y’all are making!

18:35:06 From Vince Wilcox : Love that Idea for a local POC Amazon.
