Compton Foundation Art as a Strategy for Change
In May of 2013, Ann McQueen wrote a “funder portrait” for Animating Democracy featuring 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. It explores how the Compton Foundation supports the arts, including individual artists and filmmakers, with the explicit intention of amplifying critical issues in a way that blends the personal, political, emotional, and intellectual.
