velocity in transition

Our transition initiative began in Fall 2020 to re-envision Velocity’s future. Our goal in this initiative is to fully center artists, and in particular, BIPOC artists, in four key areas: programming, leadership, organizational processes, and allocation of our space and financial and other resources. Transition projects in progress include a mission + vision update; Velocity Faculty Artist Circle; Velocity Artist Index; and Space Acquisition, Fundraising and Arts + Tech committees open to community members.
