Grants of $2,500 to New York artists in Greene, Schoharie, and Columbia Counties for professional development and community engagement. All applicants must attend a seminar. Funding is primarily intended to substantially promote the artist's work. Eligible projects must lead to the creation of new work, and the local community must be actively involved in some way during the artist’s creative process.
These grants are not artist fellowships but are intended to support original works by creative artists interested in working within a community setting; therefore, the project must engage a segment of the community through a public program. “Community” can be defined as geographic, racial, ethnic, or philosophical. Finished projects may contain an (optional) presentation component.
- The project must clearly demonstrate the advancement of the artist’s work.
- The new work ust engage the community in some way through the artist’s creative process. Some examples of this type of interaction are interviews with a segment of the community, creation of parallel work by a community group, stories and anecdotes collected from a community group that relate to the concept or content of the project, or public program such as a performance or exhibition.
- There must be some type of tangible finished work at the end of the grant period such as finished poems, photographs, video, CD, etc. The finished work may also be presented in the form of an exhibition, performance, etc. but this is optional.
- Artistic Merit
