Bronx Council on the Arts Invites Applications for 2020 Community Engagement Grants

A pioneering advocate for cultural equity, the Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) nurtures the development of a diverse array of artists and arts organizations and builds strong cultural connections in and beyond the Bronx. 

To that end, the BCA Community Engagement Grants offers funding to support community-centered arts and culture projects that aim to contribute to the cultural life of the borough. Applications are accepted from individual artists, artist collectives, and nonprofit arts and community organizations for projects in a wide variety of disciplines, including dance, film/video/media, folk arts, interdisciplinary arts, literary arts, multidisciplinary projects, music, opera, theater, visual arts/crafts, and others. Emerging and pre-professional artists, women, the disabled, artists of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and other underrepresented individuals or organizations are encouraged to apply. 

BCA's Community Engagement Grants are divided into three different categories: New Work, Arts Fund, and Community Arts

BCA will be hosting an application session for prospective grantees on August 28 from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m.

The Application deadline for 2020 community Engagement Grants is Monday, October 7. 

See the Bronx Council on the Arts Website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
