Ebony McKinney Arts Leadership Award NOMINATION (2018-19)
Leadership takes many forms, finding curious moments/topics to investigate and challenge. Leaders support others in visible and often invisible ways, empowering their communities and collaborators. Deeply rooted leaders often don’t get the appreciation for all the work they do.

Emerging Arts Professionals SFBA, with support from the San Francisco Arts Commission, opens a call for nominations (including self-nominations) for the 2018 Ebony McKinney Arts Leadership Award. This award is a collective effort to recognize arts and culture administrators who are addressing critical issues facing San Francisco’s arts community, and to continue the work of Ebony McKinney, whose deep commitment to cultivating leaders of color and increasing equitable access to the arts in the Bay Area made a lasting positive impact locally and nationally before her death in July 2017.

"The family of Ebony McKinney greatly appreciate the creation of this award to honor her legacy in such an inspiring way. We can think of no greater gift than a grant to other arts administrators driven as she was by the goals of empowering those in the arts community to help deserving artists." — Ron McKinney

EAP will provide the awardee with $4,000 unrestricted funds to support the powerful work benefitting San Franciscans and connected Bay Area communities. We will work with SFAC and other partners to identify opportunities for the awardee to share work with practitioners, policymakers, and other allies. We hope this is a first step toward a future expanded Bay Area award with additional regional partners.

>>> DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FRIDAY, JULY 20, 10:00AM PDT
Full applications for those nominated will be open from July 20 – August 12, 2018
