As part of the Artists Engaging in Social Change program, the Surdna Foundation has issued a Request for Proposals to support artists and organizations focused on social engagement. 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.’” The second webinar to answer questions airs today, October 21st, at 1pm ET. Submissions are due November 12, 2014 at 11:59pm ET and grants 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.
