Community Workshops Give Locals a Larger Voice in the Future of Taos’ Arts Scene

  • Local Champion: Harwood Museum of Art
  • Date Funded: September 30, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $9,400

While Taos has long been known for its arts community, that reputation hasn’t always included traditional and historical voices, and Taosenos have had few opportunities to engage in creative ways of planning the future of the local artistic community and its place in the local economy. Staff at the Harwood Museum of Art, an anchor arts institution that specializes in highlight the artistic history of the region, came up with an idea to address this problem:┬áLaunch a series of workshops and workgroups to engage Taos community members and artists in sustaining the local arts economy in creative and accessible ways. LOR’s funding will help support the supply and service costs for workshops and meetings that include establishing a vision for what the next 100 years of Taos’ arts community might look like.

This project was fiscally sponsored by the University of New Mexico Foundation, Inc.
