2022 Art Angels Grant Cycle is Open

WHAT: 2022 Art Angels Grant Cycle
WHEN: Application closes April 2022.

The Art Angels Grant Application is now open! In this grant cycle, we hope to fund artistic productions made by seasoned and emerging local fiscally sponsored artists & small to mid-size non-profit organizations that serve the Connecticut River Valley in Western Massachusetts. We support innovative, courageous, experimental projects that serve marginalized communities and promote the arts as a way to heal, feel, learn & transform.

We’re doing things a bit differently this time around. In 2022, our grantmaking process is being led by a group of local Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) experienced artists who will work together to distribute funds.

Meet this year's Grant Review Committee:
Ella Alkiewicz, Nicole Young-Martin, Iréne ISHEA Shaikly, & Leila Zainab.
