Addressing racial wealth gaps
Rapid City, SD — Main Street Square will research, develop and implement a successful community arts collaborative and clearinghouse that will create a sustainable, equitable future for the arts and artists in Rapid City.
The most important lesson we learned over and over again is that artists have to be at the core of arts organizations’ work. Artists are the people doing the creative work that organizations support, they make things happen.
Partnerships with other organizations, administrators and decision-makers are critical, but helping artists feel welcomed and appreciated is the key to Arts Rapid City’s success.
