NEFA Invites Applications for Creative City Grants

The New England Foundation for the Arts is accepting applications for its Creative City grants program.

The program supports artists in all disciplines interested in creating a project that takes place in a public space in the City of Boston and integrates public participation into the artistic process and/or presentation.

To be eligible, projects must be sited in Boston and have a lead applicant who is either an individual artist, an artist applying on behalf of a clearly articulated artistic collaboration, an unincorporated collective/company with strong artist leadership, or a culturally specific, immigrant, traditional cultural practitioner group. 

Lead artists working in any artistic discipline are encouraged to apply, but they must live east of Route I-495 in Massachusetts. Preference is given to lead applicants residing in Boston.

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

For complete program guidelines, information about previous grant recipients, and application instructions, see the NEFA website.
