The Soul of Nations Foundation relies on an extensive network of non-governmental and government partners, host and key opinion leaders, universities and cultural institutions, activists and policy collectives, formal and non-formal educators and cultural practitioners, grassroots organizations, Tribal governments, charitable foundations, legal firms, sustainable corporations, and community members of all race, gender, and creed—thus helping to ensuring the formation of mobilized kinship with a high level of intellectual capacity.
THE HENRY LUCE FOUNDATION
The Soul of Nations Foundation is pleased to announce that we have received grant support from the Henry Luce Foundation through a one-time monetary contribution of $100,000 for the Green Architecture Project’s 2023-2024 program term. Forming a partnership with the Henry Luce Foundation in this manner is helping to support collaborative artist fellowship grants for Black and Indigenous emerging artists and architects from Bolivia, Kenya, and the United States.
The Henry Luce Foundation seeks to enrich public discourse by promoting innovative scholarship, cultivating new leaders, and fostering international understanding. Established in 1936 by Henry R. Luce, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of Time, Inc., the Luce Foundation advances its mission through grantmaking and leadership programs in the fields of Asia, higher education, religion and theology, art, and public policy. A leader in art funding since 1982, the Luce Foundation’s American Art Program supports innovative museum projects nationwide that advance the role of visual arts of the United States in an open and equitable society, and the potential of museums to serve as forums for art-centered conversations that celebrate creativity, explore difference, and seek common ground. The Foundation aims to empower museums and arts organizations to reconsider accepted histories, foreground the voices and experiences of underrepresented artists and cultures, and welcome diverse collaborators and communities into dialogue.
Many thanks to the Henry Luce Foundation team for choosing to stand with us to help bolster this humanities program that fosters arts and culture on the national and international levels.
Partnerships help to ensure the stability and expansion of our work toward fostering art and research programming rooted in contemporaneous and sociocultural empathetic themes.
The Soul of Nations Foundation respectfully acknowledges that we currently operate on the ancestral lands of the Munsee Lenape, Piscataway, and Anacostan peoples, which have not been ceded. Thank you for your commitment to Indigenous and Black communities. Please, share our organization’s work with those in your network who are just as invested in BIPOC progression as we are.
