Foundation is issuing a request for proposals to individual artists,
culture bearers and nonprofit arts organizations. These funds are
designed to support projects developed in response to communities’
specific challenges and to support artists and organizations whose
long-term, deeply-rooted work has increased social engagement without
necessarily being explicitly "activist.” The foundation will consider
all artistic disciplines, including cross-disciplinary work.
applicants will receive grants ranging from $25,000 to $150,000 over
one or two year periods, with a maximum total award of $150,000. The
Request for Proposals is on the Surdna Foundation website: www.surdna.org/rfp
The deadline for submitting a proposal is November 12, 2014 at 11:59 pm EST. Grants will be announced in April 2015.
