The art world has traditionally been elitist and inaccessible to many artists as well as many art enthusiasts from marginalized backgrounds. This inaccessiblity has recently sparked discussions in the mainstream about representation and diversity in the arts, and many are trying to figure out the best way forward. As a regular contributor to Culture Pledge, I write pieces on how crowdfunding can be a powerful tool used to accomplish these goals. I have written on topics as diverse as the effect of the 2020 Beirut explosion on the local arts community, online art platforms, and Black artists working with AI to dismantle systemic racism.
