Grant Workshop Series for Creative City
I am excited to announce a series of grant workshops focusing on NEFA’s newest initiative, Creative City, a three-year pilot that makes grants to Boston area artists to create works that integrate public participation.
Artists who reside within route 495 in Massachusetts and community organizations in the city of Boston are invited to bring project ideas and questions about applying to Creative City. These workshops are designed to help artists prepare applications, and participants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the program background and the grant guidelines in advance. The workshops and office hours sessions are:
- 1.21.16 | Grant Workshop | Mattapan Public Library, 6:00pm to 7:30pm
- 1.22.16 | Office Hours | NEFA, 1:00pm to 4:00pm (three 45 min. slots)
- 1.25.16 | Grant Workshop | Hibernian Hall, Roxbury, 9:00am to 10:30am
- 1.25.16 | Office Hours | Hibernian Hall, Roxbury, 11:00am to 1:00pm (two 45 min. slots)

Creative City supports individual artists, artist collectives, and artistic collaborations in all disciplines and with roots in diverse cultures, forms, and aesthetics. Grants range from $2,500-$10,000. An additional stipend of up to $2,500 is available for community partners to help support presentation costs. Creative City is made possible with funding from the Barr Foundation.
The next application deadline is February 12, 2016. Learn more about funding priorities, eligibility, criteria, and access the online application.
I look forward to meeting you and learing about your work!
