In another article about the sector, an author from Wake Forest School of Medicine argues that funders should support naturally emerging networks.

An author from the Cultural Center for Social Change provides a thoughtful reflection on the importance of artists in leading grassroots movements and highlights models for leadership-development training for cultural activists.
