National Endowment for the Arts : ART WORKS

Internal Deadline: January 30, 2017, 11:30PM
Sponsor Deadline: February 13, 2017
Amount: $10,000 to $100,000
All grants require a non-Federal match of at least 1:1

"Art Works" refers to three things: the works of art themselves, the ways art works on audiences, and the fact that art is work for the artists and arts professionals who make up the field. 


To deepen  and extend the arts' value, including their ability to foster new connections and to exemplify creativity and innovation, the agency welcomes projects that:
  • Are likely to prove transformative with the potential for meaningful change, whether in the development or enhancement of new or existing art forms, new approaches to the creation or presentation of art, or new ways of engaging the public with art;
  • Are distinctive, offering fresh insights and new value for their fields and/or the public through unconventional solutions; and
  • Have the potential to be shared and/or emulated, or are likely to lead to other advances in the field.

NOTE: This is a Limited Submission Opportunity. The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) runs two application cycles per year for their Art Works program. Each year, Harvard University may submit one application to only one of these grant cycles. Applicants who wish to apply for either cycle should submit an internal application by January 30, 2017.
Exception: The NEA considers Harvard museums and the A.R.T. as separate entities.
