How the Arts Can Promote Equity for Underrepresented Populations

Happy Artober, everyone! In honor of Artober, I’ve partnered with my local community foundation to explore how the arts can be used to support all kinds of philanthropic causes through a short podcast mini-series. In Part 1, I highlight four organizations in my home base of Nashville, TN to discover how arts programs can help promote equity for underrepresented populations including people with disabilities, people impacted by homelessness, minority gender and sexuality groups, people experiencing mental illness, and people recovering from addiction.
