Since 2016, the White Institution’s Guide For Welcoming Artists of Color* And Their Audiences has been used by over two hundred (200) cultural institutions around the world to better their equity practices.

This Guide addresses the supportive roles the white institution needs to continuously develop when welcoming Black and artists of color. There needs to be a genuine will to keep acknowledging our complicated realities, to let go of a universal framework based on vague notions of diversity, and to provide tools for a targeted approach relying on inquiry, analysis, criticality and reparation.

In the context of it’s restauration, reflecting on my own experience and embodiment as an artists since the first publication, I decided to protect my work and legacy by setting up a sliding scale for acquiring the full version of the Guide. If you are interested in having a consultation with me, please message info@fanniesosa.com.

Thank you for supporting my work. <3
