“A partnership with South Arts and in collaboration with the other five U.S. Regional Arts Organizations (RAOs), ArtsHERE will provide non-matching grant support for organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to equity within their practices and programming. Grants will fund specific projects that will strengthen grantees’ capacity to sustain meaningful community engagement and increase arts participation for underserved groups/communities. ArtsHERE is also a knowledge-sharing endeavor, with peer-learning and technical assistance opportunities for grantees. Working with grantees throughout the projects, the NEA also plans to report on lessons learned from this pilot initiative, which may inform the future of ArtsHERE and other similar funding programs and practices. More details and guidelines are available at ArtsHERE.org. The deadline to submit a statement of interest is Friday, January 19, 2024. A webinar for potential applicants will take place on Thursday, November 30, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. ET and the RAOs are holding office hours for applicants. More information is available at ArtsHERE.org in the “webinar and office hours” tab.”
