Item 10 - Thrive Review Panelists original pdf

Panelists Portland, OR Ursula Barton Removing barriers for a diversity of voices to be present in decision making, leadership, and access to resources has been my main focus since 2016 when I was a founding member of NTX LVL, a fem identifying lead activism group that threw art centered events to raise money for BIPOC lead non-profits focused on building equity by centering the voices and needs of the BIPOC community. Working within this group for 2.5 years taught me a lot about my roll in the organization, as well as in the community. As an able bodied cis white woman, I learned that building equity is a call to action, to continuously examine my own biases, access, and recourses that I have as a result of a system that has been built to benefit me, and to intentionally use my time and privilege to meaningfully and authentically help in the dismantling of systems of white supremacy, ableism, sexism, and discrimination. I understand equity as not giving the same to everyone, but creating opportunities that specifically seeks to rebalance the generations of blocked access to important resources and power, and to make certain to consider the context of this compounded effect on marginalized communities when building a team, offering support, and working to build a more just system to replace the unjust one we currently operate in. NXT LVL dissolved in 2018, so I expanded my storefront and gallery space, Jailbreak Studios, to build on our mission, centering marginalized voices in Portland's art scene. It's an honor to work with 40+ artists from underrepresented communities, supporting and providing space for them to tell their own stories through their art. I think America needs to be better at listening to marginalized voices, centering their experiences, and sharing access and power with a diversity of backgrounds to effectively build equity within any system. Ilyana Bocanegra Illyana Bocanegra (they/them) is a filmmaker and designer living in Austin with 7+ years of visual communication design in TV/Film, print media, and web applications; Technical expertise in producing, directing, and making creative content for individuals, brands, small businesses, and non-profits. My connection to equity begins with my identity as a Mexican-American artist, educator, and organizer. I understand the complicated nature of our current power structures and how they affect people like me. I've participated in panel conversations for Austin Design Week where my creative partners and …

Item 16 - Art Neighborhoods Working Group Draft Document original pdf

Page 1 of 4 pages

Art Neighborhood Draft July 2022 Lament “Austin, oh Austin, the city formerly known as Weird and now is known as tech and corporate! How we weep for you as we move to Bastrop and Buda and Marfa and farther‐flung. The children you gathered under your wings are scattering. Is there yet hope?” It’s one thing to know artists are leaving Austin; it’s another to feel the hemorrhage. We want to convey the heart and feeling of this idea. Proposal: To create designation of “Art Neighborhood” in the city of Austin. What is an Art Neighborhood? An art neighborhood is a designated area of Austin with a significant artist presence that is supported by its neighborhood community in a mutually beneficial relationship. An art neighborhood needs 3 mutually‐supporting parts:  Working art studios  A neighborhood organization  Additional support structures (see below for more details on the 3 parts) Why this proposal? Austin is a unique and vibrant city, for decades welcoming and nourishing a colorful creative culture at its heart and soul. However, the daily influx of newcomers has overwhelmed the infrastructure of Austin as more and more people cram into ever‐shrinking smaller and smaller spaces and competing for spaces that are becoming less and less affordable. Unable to afford the ever‐ increasing costs of living and working here, many of Austin’s artists and musicians have been leaving. This proposal is one idea to help stem that erosion and to begin to recreate an environment for the creative community to once again thrive and flourish. An art neighborhood designation would spotlight Austin’s creative community and create alliance and advocacy with already existing local support structures. Why art studios? Artists need space to work, whether it be a dance studio, a pottery studio, a theater, a music venue, a spare bedroom, or Lord help us, the less than ideal but often the only place available, but hopefully temporary, the dining room table. Affordability for living space in Austin has become increasingly difficult for almost everybody. Adding the expense of studio working space on top of that makes affordability impossible for many artists. Just as there are not enough places for people to live, there are also few studio spaces left. Many former studio spaces have been bulldozed and replaced with condos. Why a neighborhood organization? Austin lists 1820 different neighborhood organizations, as well as over 80 neighborhood associations. Rather than …
