Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) announces its application cycle for the 2019 Manhattan Arts Grants supporting arts projects across all of Manhattan.
LMCC’s grants are available to support Manhattan-based artists and arts organizations working in any discipline to share artistic projects and programming with Manhattan audiences and participants. Supported activities include concerts, performances, public art, exhibitions, screenings, festivals, workshops, readings, and more.
Creative Engagement grants provide support to individual artists and organizations to engage and enrich the public through the arts. Often a launching pad for emerging artists and organizations working across disciplines, these grants respond directly to the need for financial support of artists living and working in Manhattan and to the richness and diversity of arts programming they offer across the borough.
Creative Learning grants support Manhattan’s teaching artists and small arts organizations that provide opportunities for in-depth, community-based arts education and enrichment to participants including youth, adults, or seniors.
Both programs award public funds provided by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and State funds, provided by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA). Funding is intended for artists and organizations that are not able to apply directly to the City and/or State for arts funding. The application deadline for both programs is Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 5:00pm.
