We are committed to diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion (DEAI). Arts and culture opportunities help build bridges of understanding, create positive social change, and help us all learn from one another.
The Arts Council facilitates focused efforts to address issues of racial equity and inclusion in the arts, working together with our board and staff, arts professionals, community activists, and consultants to develop trainings and resources for and among communities who have traditionally been underrepresented or have not been fully included or welcomed.
We welcome you to join us in these efforts to challenge assumptions about ourselves and others so that our regional arts and culture is increasingly equitable for all.
Network for Arts Administrators of Color Pittsburgh
Modeled after similar groups in Boston and Washington, D.C., the Network for Arts Administrators of Color connected professionals of color to seek friendship, mentorship, and problem-solving through affiliations with other arts leaders. Our NAAC Pittsburgh affinity group has joined the new Pittsburgh Arts Administrators of Color led by leaders at the Pittsburgh Opera. Please join them if you are interested in continuing this mission!
