Today, we share at two blog posts by John Killacky, former Program Officer for Arts and Culture at The San Francisco Foundation, one of the initiators of the Wallace Foundation Cultural Participation Initiative in the San Francisco Bay Area, and a deep thinker much missed in our community.
Written earlier last year, this post on ARTSblog outlines the “Essential Skills for Making the Most of Resources in the Nonprofit Arts, referencing the Dynamic Adaptability convening hosted by the Initiative last year.
And from BlueAvocado.org, John Killacky weighs in on cultural equity funding and other philanthropic trends in his provocative “Regrets of a Former Arts Funder.”
John Killacky is currently the executive director at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts in Burlington, Vermont.
Coming soon: an interview with John Killacky and Grants for the Arts’ Kary Schulman about the start of the Cultural Participation Initiative in the San Francisco Bay Area.
