With full funding from the Marrazzo Family Foundation, each grant will now increase from $500 to $1,000 and we will be offering two opportunities for grants for Philadelphia-based teaching artists; one application in the winter for spring projects and one application in the summer for fall projects. Each round will fund up to ten grants, bringing the annual total up to $20,000. The Marrazzo Family Foundation is based in Philadelphia and has an initial strategic focus of supporting the integration of creativity and the arts in educating Philadelphia youth, in ways that are novel, interdisciplinary, and visionary.
The Bartol and Marrazzo Family Foundations partner to make Teaching Artist Micro-Grant awards of $1,000 to help teaching artists complete community-based arts education projects that are underway; to support their own professional development as teaching artists; or to buy equipment/materials essential to their teaching artist practice. The engagement of community members as active art(s)-makers is essential to any application.
Applications will open for our next round of grants in early 2024. You can use the information below as a guideline for future applications.
Grants will be made to teaching artists who live in the Philadelphia area and projects must take place in the City of Philadelphia.
If you are working with community members, your project must engage community members (of any age) as active, creative, art-making participants (in any discipline), not just as an audience.
If you are asking for support for your own professional development or equipment/materials, you must demonstrate how this will position you to strengthen your teaching practice as well the audience you hope will benefit from your future programs.
Teaching artists are not required identify a community host site or partner, although you have the option to share a letter of support from a community partner if you have one. You cannot currently be a paid teaching artist (employee or contractor) for the organization which is your host site. This is not intended to be a grant to an organization to pay their teaching artists.
The project, either in the community or for a teaching artists’ own teaching practice, must be urgent and timely. Funds must be expended by December 31, 2023.
Note that these grants are not for your own creative practice. They are only for your work as a teaching artist.
