The Marion Voices Folklife + Oral History Program has worked, over the past three years, to develop & cultivate a critical model for bringing together economic justice + racial justice organizing in the community-based cultural work sectors. We call this model “equity budgeting.” True to its name, equity budgeting holds that the chief space of praxis & ethics for any community-based cultural work project is its budget.
