2019 Artist-Endowed Foundation Leadership Forum

This is an Invitation-Only Event

The 2019 Artist-Endowed Foundation Leadership Forum will take place on Wednesday, November 6 in New York City. An invitational symposium, the Forum convenes senior staff and board leaders of artist-endowed foundations to discuss key issues and innovations in practice and policy that are influencing the field’s charitable impact in art stewardship and cultural philanthropy.

The event is presented by the Hoffman Forum in cooperation with the Aspen Institute Artist-Endowed Foundations Initiative/AEFI and University of Miami School of Law and is hosted this year by the Jewish Museum.

The 2019 Forum Keynote Conversation will feature a discussion with painter, mixed media sculptor, performance artist, and author Faith Ringgold, founder of the Anyone Can Fly Foundation. The day will conclude with a tour of the survey exhibition Rachel Feinstein: Maiden, Mother, Crone.

In addition to fostering collegial exchange among the field’s senior leaders and building a shared body of knowledge about effective practice, the Forum informs the research, publication, and professional education programs of the Aspen Institute’s Artist-Endowed Foundations Initiative/AEFI. Sessions incorporate presentations and discussions among foundation leaders, scholars, experts, and thought leaders. Topics* on the 2019 Forum program include:
