Teaching Artist Microgrants
This new partnership between the Bartol Foundation and Small But Mighty Arts (SBMA) directly responds to a critical need reflected in the local creative community. The SBMA micro-grant is a timely, critical method of support to ensure that the creative projects, partnerships, and performances that artists create, not only see the light of day, but create a beneficial resource for creative “artrepreneurs” to persist and thrive. In the interest of its mission, SBMA’s annual micro-grants are intended to support the creative momentum and persistence of individual artists.
The Bartol Foundation Teaching Artist Micro-grants support individual teaching artists who are actively engaged in a community project with grants of $500. The first of two rounds of grants were made in June 2018 and can be viewed here. A second round of applications is now open with an application deadline of Sunday, September 9 at 5:00 pm. Grant recipients will be notified the week of September 17, 2018. Apply here!
