Art and Change Grants, Leeway Foundation – Aug 1

Posted by Leeway Foundation on July 6, 2021

The Leeway Foundation believes that art is a vital tool for community building, self-expression, and individual and collective transformation and can bridge differences, center those who have been on the margins, and challenge and connect communities and individuals so they peacefully coexist. The foundation works to promote artistic expression that amplifies the voices of those on the margins, promotes sustainable and healthy communities, and helps advance movements for economic and social justice.

To that end, the foundation is accepting applications for its Art and Change Grant program, which will award grants of up to $2,500 to women and trans artists in the greater Philadelphia area in support of art for social change projects. Creating social change must be integral to the ideas, beliefs, and goals woven throughout the applicants’ art and process of creating and sharing art.

The foundation is encouraging applications from those with art for social change projects or opportunities that affect a large group, audience, or community and that have a financial need and limited or no access to other financial resources. The Art and Change Grant is open to individual artists and cultural producers working in any medium, including traditional and nontraditional as well as multimedia and experimental forms.

Deadline to apply: August 1, 2021
