Artist Community Collaboration Grant
Step 1: Project Requirements
Artist Community Collaboration Grants support artist-initiated projects with organizations and communities to engage the public in the making and presentation of the arts and to advance the artist’s creative work.
The artist must partner with an organization, business or local government agency and must include members of a community in the making of art in a collaborative process.
The project must clearly exhibit collaboration from the project’s inception, drawing upon the artist’s and community members’ creative and artistic skills, and specifically address some aspect of the organization’s mission.
Examples of community collaboration projects are:
The artist leads or engages community participants in the creation of new work, such as a mural or theater piece
The artist leads and/or organizes workshops, institutes, courses, retreats, residencies or master classes that are open to community participants (not part of credit-producing institutional offerings), resulting in a public presentation of the work produced.
For the purposes of this grant program, community collaboration is defined as a project in which participants together develop the concept and participate in the execution and/or presentation of the work of art. A performance or exhibition by an artist at a community-based organization is not a community collaboration, but workshops or residencies may be.
Projects must occur and be completed between July 1, 2011, and June 30, 2012, the fiscal year of the Kansas Arts Commission.
Applicants and artists must also meet eligibility and grant restrictions. For more information, please see All Applicants.
