Organizational Well-Being in Black Arts cover

This study examines the question: What mechanisms do Black arts organizations utilize to remember, fortify, and advance organizational well-being?

Given Virginia’s racist history, the impact of Black arts organizations on fostering community connection, protection, and celebration is felt even more deeply. By providing access to artistic opportunities and a platform for self-expression, cultural empowerment, and community cohesion, these organizations leave a lasting impact on the next generation of artists, leaders, and activists. 

Addressing the challenges faced by Black arts organizations is essential for creating a more equitable and vibrant arts landscape. Strategies such as increasing funding opportunities, enhancing connection to their communities, and fostering a workplace culture of wellness can contribute to enhancing the organizational health and impact of Black arts organizations.
