Grants of $2,500 to New York City artists in eligible locations to support community-centered arts and culture projects. Funding is intended to support projects that engage and involve the community. The purpose of this program is to enhance local cultural life by supporting community-based, high-quality arts projects in all disciplines, genres, and styles. Eligible disciplines include dance, film/video/media, folk arts, interdisciplinary arts, literary arts, multidisciplinary projects, music, opera, theater, and visual arts/crafts. Applicants must be based in the Bronx.
An essential element of this funding is a community engagement component. The project must engage a segment of the community through a public program, such as an exhibition or performance that is open to the public, and/or the inclusion of community involvement in the development and creative process of the artist’s project. This inclusion can be in the form of feedback, response, interaction and/or social practice by or with community members. Some examples of this type of interaction are interviews with a segment of the community, creation of parallel work by a community group, or stories and anecdotes collected from a community group that relate to the concept or content of the project.
Emerging and pre-professional artists, women, the disabled, artists of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and other under-represented individuals or organizations are encouraged to apply.
