UMEZ Arts Engagement: Enhancing the Diversity and Frequency of Arts & Cultural Presentations (U.S.)

Deadline: 29-Sep-20

UMEZ Arts Engagement is a grant program designed to enhance the diversity and frequency of arts and cultural presentations in Upper Manhattan. The program provides direct support for these activities to Upper Manhattan’s artists and nonprofit arts organizations under the guiding principle that support for artists of diverse disciplines, practices, cultural backgrounds, and career stages contributes to the vibrancy and sustainability of the communities in which they live and work.

1000 new grants and donors
UMEZ Arts Engagement invites proposals from artists and arts organizations that are 1) based in Upper Manhattan and 2) presenting arts projects or programming serving Upper Manhattan between January 1–December 31, 2021.

Program funding is provided by the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corporation (UMEZ). The UMEZ Arts Engagement program is administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC).

Funding priority will be given to projects that elevate the cultural activity and aspirations of the community in which they are presented and are created by artists with deep connections to the content and community involved.
