Money for Artists in all Disciplines
As of May 24, 2006, The Urban Artist Initiative New York City (UAI/NYC) has launched a new Grants Program for Individual Artists of Color in New York City in all disciplines. UAI/NYC, comprised of the Asian American Arts Alliance, the Association of Hispanic Arts, the Harlem Arts Alliance, and the Queens Council on the Arts, in partnership with the Bronx Council on the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts, has received $100,000 to so distribute.
Grants range from $250 to $2,500 and will be awarded to support new works that are in the creation, development, and/or completion stages in all areas of visual, literary and performing arts. This pilot program, under the auspices of the UAI/NYC, will consider applications from individual artists of color (i.e., of African, Asian, and Latino descent) who reside in the five boroughs of New York City.
UAI/NYC is a major project of the Creative Communities Program of Leveraging Investments in Creativity (LINC) – a ten-year national campaign to improve conditions for artists in all disciplines, so that artists can more readily do their creative work and contribute to community life. UAI/NYC has received major funding from LINC, The Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and the Booth Ferris Foundation
