Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania will engage its staff, board, community, and consultants in a strategic visioning process, centered on diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion themes, that will guide its internal processes and future curatorial, public engagement, and fundraising efforts. A revised mission statement and organizational plan will consider how this venue for contemporary art and culture can become more welcoming, relevant, and responsive to the local and global communities it serves.

The total grant amount represents project funding plus an additional 20% in unrestricted general operating support.
