I am pleased to announce the launch of the FY18 guidelines and applications for LMCC’s Manhattan Arts Grants: Creative Engagement and Creative Learning. Manhattan Arts Grants award project grants of up to $8,000 to Manhattan-based artists, emerging arts groups, and community-based organizations working across disciplines to connect local communities to rich artistic experiences.
This is always an exciting time at LMCC. In 2017, we awarded over $650,000 to more than 200 individual artists, collectives, and organizations working in a wide range of artistic forms from folk and traditional forms to contemporary and socially engaged artistic practices. Our grantees’ innovative works and transformative arts programs will be shared with 300,000 people across the borough this year. If you are not already accessing City and State funding, please review the FY18 Creative Engagement and Creative Learning program guidelines, FAQs, and eligibility chart to determine which grant program is right for you. We are offering information sessions all summer to share application advice and answer your questions. First-time applicants are required to attend. Find an information session happening near you and RSVP now.
