Grants of up to $15,000 to Massachusetts artists, collaborations, and nonprofit organizations for public art projects that promote social justice. Funding is intended to support projects across the artistic disciplines that are accessible to the general public, contribute to the imagination of the community, and encourage a more equitable future for public spaces and public culture. Priority will be given to projects that are led or co-led by BIPOC artists and are rooted in community, or demonstrate a deep relationship to place.
These grants may or may not support the outcomes of a Collective Imagination for Spatial Justice grant.
Eligible projects will be reviewed according to the following funding criteria:
The Foundation recognizes that feasibility may vary depending on how public health guidelines evolve during the pandemic. The Foundation asks that artists are realistic about feasibility, while acknowledging that this may change as public health guidelines change.
