National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures: Fund for the ArtsDeadline: September 25, 2019
Developed in response to the articulated needs of the Latinx workforce and the historic undercapitalization of our field, the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC) Fund for the Arts (NFA) was cultivated by a national coalition of advisors including artists, organizers, funders and leaders. The NFA provides critical financial resources to Latinx creative and cultural practitioners working at the forefront of social change through the arts. It believes in the innate skill of Latinx artists to work with communities to dream, imagine, and co-create concepts of justice that are not rooted in the limitations of the here and now but in the endless potential of the future.
- Sustain the creation and presentation of works by Latino artists and arts organizations
- Build the capacity of Latino arts organizations and artists
- Support the creative expression of artists that exhibit a high level of artistic excellence and innovation
- Empower Latino artists and arts organizations in their efforts to promote social justice and social change through the arts
- Strengthen communities by investing in cultural assets and human and social capital of Latinos in the U.S. and Puerto Rico
Grant funds may be used to support any stage of the creative process, including but not limited to living wages, research, production, living expenses, documentation, evaluation, occupancy, travel, and training. The Artist Grant supports artists whose work demonstrates excellence and the potential for impacting the Latinx arts field. Organization Grants support U.S.-based organizations whose primary mission is focused on Latino arts and culture in any arts discipline.
