The deadline to submit socially-engaged art and design project proposals to Surdna’s Artists Engaging in Social Change program is quickly approaching. Ranging from $25,000 to $150,000, the grants will be awarded to artists whose “long-term, deeply-rooted work has increased social engagement without necessarily being explicitly ‘activist.’” Proposals are due Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at 11:59pm ET and grant awards will be announced in April 2015.
Surdna’s Artists Engaging in Social Change program works to promote the potential of artists to be catalysts for social change and to promote the cultural traditions of their communities. The foundation values artists and culture bearers who nurture, sustain, and grow our communities’ cultural traditions. We therefore support projects that help artists and culture bearers deepen our cultural understanding or help communities achieve social change.
