Our Next Deadline

FOR INDIVIDUALS

Applications for the January 9, 2023 Individual Artist deadline will be available by December 1, 2022. Note that the LOI portion (part 1) must be submitted on or before December 20, 2022 in order to access the complete application.

Competitive Individual Artist Grants are awarded to encourage the development of entirely original work by artists who are full-time residents of the SEMAC Region. Original creations in each of the five artistic disciplines - Dance, Literary Arts, Music, Theatre and Visual Arts, as well as interdisciplinary work- will be considered. The original work must culminate in a public showcasing or Capstone Event, via publication, performance, or exhibition, at an accessible venue provided by a non-profit organization. If in-person capstone events are still not possible, virtual events will be acceptable.

See Grant Categories for more information about upcoming deadlines.
