The President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team allready published in an effort to reduce federal spending by $10.5 trillion over 10 years, a plan that calls for the complete elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The National Endowment for the Arts is an independent federal agency that funds, promotes, and strengthens the creative capacity of communities in the U.S. by providing all Americans with diverse opportunities for arts participation. The National Endowment for the Humanities is an independent federal agency and one of the largest funders of humanities programs in the United States.

The art critic and senior editor of Hyperallergic Jillian Steinhauer described at Hyperallergic 2 days befor Trumb’s inauguration on January how this cut could affect the U.S. communities and its culture.

The European Crisis and Fleeing Artists


On November 10th, inenart in the name of diyalog participated into a round table about the migration crisis and cultural identity at the Centro Pecci in Prato, Italy. The round table and the discussion at Villa Romana in Florence was a collaboration between Centro Pecci and Villa Romana.

Gravitiy for All will become a network between artists who just arrived in Italy and Europe and those who are already living there. A platform to share information about residencies, grants and experiences.

The question of the discussion was: if the European migration crisis continues to be a scandal, how should  artists and cultural workers behave? How to create networks (in Europe and beyond), find cultural identity in exile and give voice to artistic practices that go beyond the so-called “internationalism” of the twentieth century? If cultural education is the foundation of every society how to promote respect for artistic/cultural producers? What are the urgent concerns of the artists that have just arrived? Which partners could be involved for future collaborations?
