Fundraising as Community Engagement

Workshop by Katherine Ann Leilani Tuider (United States), Executive Director, and Co-founder, Honolulu Biennial Foundation

Successful fundraising is dependent upon a deep understanding of the community in which it is taking place, where “community” is understood as a complex ecosystem of individuals, government, businesses and non-profit organizations that overlap, collaborate and sometimes compete with one another. In this workshop, participants will explore various case studies of how public art works and exhibitions are funded in international cities with diverse fundraising opportunities and challenges based on their unique community ecosystems. Participants will walk away with a deeper understanding of how to design public-private collaborations from various perspectives, whether it be a top-down or grassroots approach, or a hybrid of the two.

BIOGRAPHY

Katherine Ann Leilani Tuider is the Executive Director and Co-founder of Honolulu Biennial Foundation, a contemporary art nonprofit that produces the Honolulu Biennial. Tuider moved back to Honolulu from Paris in 2014 to build the Biennial, which launched in 2017 featuring 33 artists from Hawaiʻi and the countries and continents united by the Pacific. After the initial success of the first Biennial, Tuider led her team in launching the second Honolulu Biennial in 2019, which featured 47 artists and collectives and welcomed over 114,000 visitors. Tuider is interested in fostering art centers (both physical and philosophical) that incite curiosity about alternative aesthetics and concepts in contemporary art, and that provide pathways to understanding the beautiful complexity of the Pacific.

Tuider’s prior experience includes being an international recruiter for the CARANA Corporation focused on projects in economic growth, natural resource management, tourism and art. An innovative tourism specialist, Tuider founded Anti-Tour, a socially conscious travel company in Dominican Republic, and authored Dominican Republic, a travel guide published by Other Places, 2012. From 2007-2010, she served as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Dominican Republic, where she helped manage a $1 million public health budget and organized over 20 health conferences.

An advocate for making the arts accessible for all, Tuider has built dozens of partnerships across institutions to help fund and lower barriers to the arts. In January 2018, Tuider won first place at International Start-Up Weekend in Seattle for a prototype to make visual arts more accessible for the blind. In recognition of raising nearly $6 million to support Hawaii’s creative community via Honolulu Biennial, Tuider was honored with Pacific Business News’ 40 Under 40 Award in June 2019. Tuider received her BA from University of Pennsylvania in Health and Societies (Public Health) and an MBA in Arts and Cultural Management from Paris School of Business/ Institut d'études supérieures des arts.

ART, URBAN CHANGE, AND THE PUBLIC SPHERE: PUBLIC ART EDUCATION SUMMIT

Art, Urban Change, and the Public Sphere: Public Art Education Summit is the first of its kind in Singapore and part of a larger engagement of NTU CCA Singapore in professional education of public art. It focuses on cultural place-making and building communities through artistic practices. It aims to stimulate a debate between art professionals, policy makers, urban developers and other local stakeholders, on how and for whom art creates public spaces in our built environment. Any artistic or curatorial initiative in “public space” must address the question of how to construct “a public” and with it, how to encounter identity. Any difference—be it regional and local, ethnic and religious, economic and social—generates its own cohabitation of urban space and public culture to communicate with. The challenge for art in the public sphere lies in its openness to existing and yet, imagined communities of civic urbanism. Ranging from corporate cultural engagement in privately owned public spaces to urban regeneration, the invited speakers draw connections to the beginnings of community engagement in public art with its fluid methods. Furthermore, they suggest a critical look at different artistic and curatorial practices which reflect on “artists as citizens.” Or, how any space called public, first and foremost, is created by the different people inhabiting that space.

Held in association with College of Fine Arts, Shanghai University, and Institute for Public Art, London. Supported by Mapletree Investments and, additionally, by Public Art Trust, an initiative of National Arts Council Singapore.
