ARTS COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION 20210315-4.b.ii Seconded By: Commissioner Amy Mok Date: 3-15-2021 Subject: Arts Commission FY22 Budget Recommendation Motioned By: Commissioner Lulu Flores Recommendation Recommendation to approve two new Full Time Employees (FTE) with adequate funding, for the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division in the FY22 budget. Description of Recommendation to Council Our Commission recommends that the City include two new full-time employees (FTE) with adequate funding, in the FY22 budget for the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division. One FTE will be a Community Engagement Specialist/Consultant for the Art In Public Places program. The other will be a Community Engagement Specialist/Consultant for the Cultural Arts Funding program. Rationale: Members of the Arts Community, especially those from historically underrepresented and underfunded groups, are facing continuing financial challenges such as housing, affordable creative spaces, low incomes and access to opportunity and growth. Cultural Arts Division programs provide opportunities to alleviate some of the challenges. The information is complex and dense. New applicants usually require assistance in determining their eligibility and meeting milestones throughout the process. CAD administrators conduct Information Sessions and Open Office Hours to provide assistance. Invitations depend on channels that reach existing applicants or potential applicants that are already knowledgeable about the programs. A Community Engagement Specialist (or Consultant) will provide the communication and outreach skills needed to inform and assist potential applicants. Thus, relieving CAD administrators of these additional tasks to focus on their primary job functions. The Community Engagement Specialist will also bring additional strategies to address equitable access to CAD programs. 1 of 2 10-0 Vote For: Commissioner Jaime Castillo, Chair Commissioner Michelle Polgar, Vice Chair Commissioner Brett Barnes Commissioner Lulu Flores Commissioner Bears Rebecca Fonte Commissioner Felipe Garza Commissioner kYmberly Keeton Commissioner Amy Mok Commissioner Rick van Dyke Commissioner Celina Zisman Against: none Abstain: none Absent: none Attest: Anne-Marie McKaskle-Davis, Arts Commission Staff Liaison 2 of 2

Funding Review Process: Arts Commission Report original pdf

Thumbnail of the first page of the PDF
Page 1 of 6 pages

Funding Review Process: Arts Commission Report (talking points) HOW WE GOT HERE Cultural Funding Responsiveness WG The Cultural Funding Responsiveness Working Group was established in AUG 2018 in response to misalignments by funding working groups unable to communicate with each other. The prevailing assumption that the “community agreement” directed the city and the Commission to fund “everyone” and the successful outreach efforts by CAD staff to underserved as well as new artists, created a strain on available funds. After meeting 5 times, the WG concluded that a decision must be made. But neither the Arts Commission nor CAD staff could make it. “Do we fund everyone with less money? Or fund less groups with more money?” The WG introduced two action items at the 2018 Arts Commission retreat: the 4 pillars to guide all WG discussions regarding funding programs and a survey to begin community outreach. 2018 HOT funding plateau The plateau in HOT funds plus the increase of successful applicants reduced available funds. Technically, HOT funds increased from the previous year (see green bar in the graph). But the Pg.1 Prepared by Arts Commission Chair, Jaime Salvador Castillo 1/23/21 - 2/2/21 percentage of growth was less than in previous years. And the rollover amount was also less than previous years. Issues to fix, identified by cultural contractors At both the regular September Arts Commission meeting and the Special Called Joint Music & Arts meeting in 2018, citizen communications speakers identified issues with the funding program that needed to be addressed. 1. Historic Inequities 2. Over 90% acceptance 3. Peer panel 4. 5. Better, more timely communication of changes or issues that affect the community Inconsistent Scores At the conclusion of the Special Called Joint Music & Arts meeting, CAD staff and the Arts Commission both committed to a complete review of the cultural funding process. 2018 Audit Report: Cultural Arts Contract Monitoring? http://www.austintexas.gov/sites/default/files/files/Auditor/Audit_Reports/Cultural_Arts_Contract _Monitoring_September_2018.pdf CONSULTANT What did they do (what was their scope)? CAD staff committed to reviewing the whole cultural funding process and took the opportunity to look at all CAD programs historically and recently. This was done with the hope of identifying values for aligning CAD processes, multiple Working Groups’ conversations, community engagement, and the scope of work for the consultant. The proposed scope of work (as heard on the recording 1 of 2, of February 2019 18:00 Guide the process of evaluation, facilitate dialogue, look at …
