Animating Democracy’s most recent funder portrait, Art as a Strategy for Change, by Ann McQueen features the Compton Foundation.

This portrait is part of a series of brief papers and podcast interviews featuring funders who are supporting arts and culture as a creative strategy to achieve community building and development goals, civic engagement, or social justice goals.
