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.
