Social Equity

Social responsibility lives at the heart of what we do, who we are, and how we plan to grow.

Art is for everyone, so intentional inclusion is critical to the vision of ArtPrize. We are actively working to remove barriers to engagement and welcome a more racially and ethnically diverse audience. We are also working to address elements of diversity that are harder to see: disability, gender identity and sexual orientation, socio-economic differences, and access to education.

Our commitment has an internal focus on our employees, work practices, and environment, as well as an external orientation towards our partners, stakeholders, and event audience.

Long-term social equity goals

2015 social equity initiatives


To challenge ourselves and our community partners, the ArtPrize Sustainability Plan encompasses environmental, social, and fiscal responsibility and centers on four themes: climate change, waste management, inclusion, and healthy living.
