Black Rock Arts Foundation Grants Announced

The Black Rock Arts Foundation (BRAF) is accepting Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) for the 2014-2015 grant cycle.

BRAF funds highly interactive, community-driven and collaborative works of art that are accessible to the public. Since 2002, BRAF grants have been used to pioneer public art that builds community and empowers individuals. For example, the Community Arts Program at Hospitality House in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district received a 2014 BRAF grant to support its fine arts studio, which provides over 1,800 low-income and homeless individuals with access to an open art studio and professional art instruction through a variety of workshops. Art created through the Community Arts Program has helped to shape the community’s identity and create a sense of culture and community among residents.

BRAF grants can be applied toward the creation of  artwork or to the development of community programs or organizations that support the creation of interactive artworks.

Check out Black Rock Arts Foundation to learn more about the LOI submission form. LOIs are due December 1, 2014. Applicants will be notified by early January 2015 whether or not they are invited to submit a full proposal. Eligible applicants include individuals, groups, and established 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.
