National Arts and Disability Center, Call for California Artists with Disabilities: Arts and Accessibility Grants Program (for Individual Artists and Arts Organizations)
Deadline: Applications will be accepted until November 30th, 2018, or until funds are gone
The purpose of the Arts and Accessibility Program is to enhance opportunities for participation in the arts by people with disabilities. This is done through small, but critical grants up to $1500 for artists with disabilities and up to $2500 for arts organizations. Grants for artists with disabilities are intended to support the advancement of their creative work and careers. Artist grants are for specific projects that contribute directly to their professional goals and development.
California-based arts organizations may request support for the hiring or involvement of artists with disabilities in arts events, and/or to increase the attendance and enhance the experience for audiences with disabilities.
Individual artist grants support activities that directly contribute to the professional growth and development of artists with disabilities. Artists may receive funding for supplies and materials, registration fees for exhibitions or workshops, studio time and coaching, editing services, and more. The program has helped artists with disabilities to increase their self-confidence, publish new literary works, exhibit new bodies of art, record music, learn new art-making techniques, network with other artists, and earn money through sales of their work.
Applications are encouraged from artists in all artistic disciplines.
