The Social Justice Artists' Collaborative is a collective of New York City-based progressive artists, practitioners, and supporting funders. We are focused on creating support for individual artists and small to mid-size organizations reflective of NYC's diverse communities. Since 2010, we have come together with the intent of sharing best practices and developing a network that supports social justice work and the sustainability of our arts, culture, artists, and organizations.
