IMLS Helps Counter Hate With New Community Initiative

IMLS announced the launch of Artists for Understanding, an initiative coordinated by a group of government agencies “that brings together a diverse community of artists and cultural luminaries who share a common belief in the power of the arts and humanities to counter hate.”

IMLS notes, “The initiative directly supports the objectives of the National Strategy to Counter Antisemitism and the National Strategy to Counter Islamophobia and Related Forms of Bias and Discrimination, and builds upon the work of United We Stand: Connecting Through Culture.

Through a series of public forums, Artists for Understanding will be “highlighting storytelling from marginalized communities, facilitating collaboration that demonstrates solidarity across cultural divides, and creating educational opportunities on the intersections and nuances between race, religion, ethnicity, and manifestations of hate. Throughout 2024, the initiative will [partner] with artists, museums, libraries, and cultural institutions, to host convenings that address these action areas.”

For more information, read the press release.
