From February to May of 2016, Michelada Think Tank convened both institutional and grassroots actors in Dallas with the goal of shifting institutional culture and resources towards cultural equity, and developing a strong artist base. The grassroots track brought together individual artists and grassroots organizers at Ash Studios to build a stronger artistic community. The institutional track met at the Latino Cultural center and participants explored ways of increasing cultural equity within their respective organizations. Both cohorts had the opportunity to meet and mingle at a mixer hosted at the Nasher Sculpture Center. Partners include the Dallas Public Library, Make Art With Purpose, Southern Methodist University, Nasher Sculpture Center, and the Dallas Contemporary. Funded by the Lift Your Voice Advocacy Fund, created by the Boone Family Foundation.
