Dumbarton Oaks | Cultural Capital: Philanthropy in the Arts and Humanities Today
June 3 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
One event on June 3, 2022 at 8:00 am
At a time when the global pandemic and longstanding social problems are driving cultural organizations to reimagine their work, audiences, and impact, this conference on cultural philanthropy is both timely and urgent. Philanthropy plays an unusually important role in the provision of public goods in the United States, where it funds museums, operas, and symphonies alongside educational initiatives and grassroots organizations. Yet cultural philanthropy has received comparatively little attention. The conference brings together thought leaders who share their insights about the role, impact, and critique of philanthropy in the cultural sphere.
Keynote lecture by Stanley Katz:
Thursday, June 2 from 6:00 PM until 7:00 PM ET (virtual)
Friday, June 3 from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM ET (virtual)
