ArtsBuild is pleased to announce the five local artists receiving awards from the Racial Equity Grants for Individual Artists (REGIA) program. They are Pablo Mazariegos, Isela Arredondo, Kristina Sánchez-Mills, Jose Loza, and Samantha De Armas.

REGIA was established for the purpose of supporting local artists of color. The grant program aims to support the work of diverse artists that are reflective of our community. National reports done over the years have shown funding inequities in the nonprofit arts sector. REGIA was designed to provide more racially equitable grant funding in our community.

This recent grant cycle was available for artists who identify as Latin(o)(a)(x) and are living and working in Hamilton County. Grant funding was available in three categories: Artist Works, Equipment, and Professional Development. REGIA is made possible with gifts from individual donors, Lyndhurst Foundation, Benwood Foundation, and Footprint Foundation.
