The Center for Gender, Art, and Culture brings together progressive groups and individuals to advance projects that educate the public about the intersections of gender, art, and culture. As a 501c3 not for profit organization, CGAC can fundraise for projects and accept grants for affiliated groups.
The Center maintains this community news site accessible to all, sends out a progressive events calendar every week (sign up with link in upper right corner of the page), and lends out video and editing equipment. In the past few years, we have facilitated the following projects: the Dept. of Public Art Mural Arts classes and mural projects, the Broome Review literary magazine, the Photo-Poetry Workshops, a gay youth film series, community lectures, a video workshop, grants for IMC outreach for the Bridge and to buy video equipment to loan to the progressive community. CGAC has also supported individual projects by artists and poets.
Most recently, we have sponsored the Dept. of Public Art, a grassroots group of artists and activists who are committed to promoting and creating public art in the Binghamton area. We sponsored three mural arts training workshops in 2013 with a grant from the Chenango Co. ARTS council NYS Decentralization program. The Dept. of Public Art has had great success in promoting public art and painting murals. Visit the Dept. of Public Art Facebook page.
The affiliated groups under CGAC are committed to sharing resources and offering mutual support for each other. The Binghamton Bridge news site and Weekly Events Calendar is open to all. We invite other progressive groups to join us in overcoming barriers to understanding each other’s issues and offering mutual support.
