The grant will support Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Design
In a collaboration between The National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA), NAACP and SEED Network received $35,000 in funding from the NEA. The goal is to educate emerging design professionals, industry professionals, and community activists about Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) in design.
The partnership also aims to raise awareness of underrepresented populations within the fields of design and underrepresented groups having limited access to design. The three organizations will collaborate to create case studies and to host a series of workshops, webinars, podcasts and graphic design assets which highlight projects that exemplify JEDI in design.
These projects are among 1,073 other projects across America totaling nearly $25 million that were selected during this first round of fiscal year 2021 funding in the Grants for Arts Projects funding category.
