Artist Restart Grants

($1,000, 175 grants available). The intention of these grants is to help artists restart their careers, covering the cost of tools, studio rentals, rehearsal spaces, submission fees or other work-related costs. These grants are designed to support an artist’s career going forward and cannot be used for personal expenses such as rent, groceries, and utilities. 

***All funds have been disbursed for this grant as of 8/16/21.***

Wug Laku Mental Health & Wellness Grants

($250 or $750). These grants were created to provide access to mental health care for artists and arts administrators. The $750 grants can be used for counseling in the form of one-on-one therapy, support groups, or art therapy. The $250 grants cover wellness practices, such as yoga, mindfulness coaching, studio art classes, and meditation. Learn more about Wug Laku, a local artist and mentor who died in 2017 due to untreated mental illness.

***All funds have been disbursed for this grant as of 8/12/21.***

Emergency Grants

These help cover unexpected expenses as a result of a catastrophic, career-threatening event such as theft, fire, flood and health emergency. To qualify, an artist must demonstrate an extreme, unexpected financial emergency.
