The National Endowment for the Arts Announces Application Guidelines Available to Support Arts Journalism Projects Through Art Works
Webinar on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 will assist applicants
January 23, 2013
Washington, DC -- The National Endowment for the Arts announces that funding for arts journalism projects is available through the NEA's Art Works funding category. Applications can be submitted through any of the NEA's 14 arts disciplines for projects featuring collaborations that strengthen the field of community arts journalism and arts criticism. These guidelines are for projects taking place in 2014.
In fiscal year 2012, the NEA supported more than 1,790 grants totaling $102 million in the Art Works category.
Applications for arts journalism projects can be submitted in any one of the following disciplines/fields.
Applicants must be either
Applicants are also required to have at least three years of programming history. Colleges and universities can apply but the NEA does not fund work required for an academic degree. For-profit media organizations are not able to apply directly but are encouraged to partner with not-for-profit organizations.
The NEA's funding guidelines present several opportunities. Arts organizations can serve their audiences as well as the broader, local arts community through arts journalism projects. Such projects also provide a means for arts organizations to partner with non-arts institutions (such as media institutions) to further the quality of cultural conversations and activities. With a greater number and variety of organizations participating in cultural conversations and activities, the arts community is strengthened. Finally, for all types of applicants, arts journalism collaborations help promote the cultural identity of a place.
This effort was inspired in part by the success of the Knight/NEA Community Arts Journalism program in 2012, though it is important to note that it is not a continuation of that program. Nor does this application invitation represent a new initiative, or a new funding stream.
