Leveraging Investments in Creativity (LINC) is a ten-year national initiative to improve conditions for artists in all disciplines which will enable them in their creative work and contribute to community life. With leadership support from the Ford Foundation, Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Nathan Cummings Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, and Surdna Foundation, LINC focuses on three strategic goals:
Expanding financial supports for artists’ work;
Improving artists’ access to essential material supports such as live/work space, insurance, equipment and professional development;
and Bolstering knowledge, networks and public policies that enhance artists’ work and their contributions to communities.
