NEFA Opens Competition for Creative City Grants

The New England Foundation for the Arts is accepting applications to its Creative City grants program. It is designed to enable artists in all disciplines to create projects in Boston to integrate public participation into artistic process and/or presentation.

Deadline: Sept. 12.

To be eligible projects, must be sited in Boston and have a lead applicant who is either an individual artist; an artist on behalf of a clearly articulated artistic collaboration; or an unincorporated collective/company with strong artist leadership. Culturally specific, immigrant, traditional cultural practitioner groups that typically work under the auspices of a parent organization are eligible to apply through the parent organization as long as the project features a strong artist lead applicant.

Preference is given to lead applicants residing in Boston.

Previous grant amounts have ranged between $3,000 to $10,000.
