CURATE A PROJECT

 

Curate a ‘Year of the City’ Project

Are you a Providence-based curator, artist, storyteller, performer, designer or maker? Do you have a project that you would like to develop that engages the public with the history, culture and life of our shared city’s twenty-five different neighborhoods? If so, please consider creating a project for Year of the City.

While we at Year of the City do not have funds to distribute, we can point you to four grant opportunities that could fund a public project:

  • Rhode Island State Council for the Arts’ Arts Access Grants for organizations (not individuals).  These grants require a dollar-for-dollar match, and the maximum grant award is $3,000. The grant deadline is April 1, 2019 to fund activities between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.

  • Rhode Island State Council for the Arts’ Project Grants for Individuals (not for organizations).  The maximum grant award is $3,000 and grants are often awarded at levels well below that. The grant deadline is April 1, 2019 to fund activities between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.    

  • Rhode Island State Council for the Arts’ Artist Fellowships (not for organizations).  One $5,000 fellowship and one $1,000 Fellowship Merit Award are granted in each discipline annually.  The grant deadline is April 1, 2019.

  • City of Providence, Department of Arts, Culture and Tourism’s Micro Grants for individuals and organizations. Please contact Micah Salkind, Special Projects Manager at the Department of Arts, Culture and Tourism for more information at msalkind@providenceri.gov.
