Artist Development Grants support artists at all stages of their careers. Grants can fund activities that enhance mastery of an artist’s craft or skills or that increase the viability of an artist's business. Funding may also support aspects of the creation of new work when the activity allows the grantee to accept a rare and important opportunity.
Eligible expenses for such activities include, but are not limited to:
advanced study of technique or practice with a mentor
attending a professional conference to build business or artistic skills or knowledge
contracting professional services including photographic documentation of work, contract preparation or business incorporation, creation of accounting systems, developing e-commerce on a website, creation of marketing materials, etc.
marketing, planning, purchasing some materials, or renting studio space (outside of your own home) to create new exhibitions or performances
travel within the United States
For examples of previously funded projects, see our list of FY2021 grantees.
Thanks to the generous support of an anonymous donor, we are able to increase the maximum grant amount this year to $2,000.
