The aim of the Spaceworks Bronx Community Artist Grant program is to enhance formal and informal connections between artists and communities in the Bronx. Spaceworks has awarded grants to emerging Bronx-based artists to support and develop creative projects that are community-based with an emphasis on social engagement, community involvement, and collaboration.
Awarded grants range from $1,000-2,000. Projects will be developed and completed during the grant period of July 15 – December 31, 2016. Awarded artists are receiving mentorship during the development of their project by Program Partner, BxArts Factory.
This grant program is made possible through support from The New York Community Trust.
