Bartol Foundation Teaching Artist Micro-Grants

Bartol Foundation Teaching Artist Micro-Grants

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, February 14, 2021

In 2021 Bartol Foundation will make Teaching Artist Micro-Grant awards of $500 to help teaching artists complete community-based arts education projects that are underway and/or to support their own professional development during the Coronavirus pandemic and uprisings against systemic racism.

In the midst of COVID-19, teaching artists may require support as they pivot to present community programs virtually, with expenses that may include, for example, technical equipment or broadband access. Other teaching artists may use this time to strengthen their teaching artist practice, for example, by designing curriculum or building out their web presence.

You can see past grantees here.

If you are working with community members, your project has to engage community members (of any age) as active, creative, artmaking participants (in any discipline), not just as an audience

If you are asking for support for your own professional development, you must demonstrate how this will position you to strengthen your teaching practice during and/or after the COVID-19 pandemic.

For 2021, the requirement that teaching artists identify and confirm a community host site is being waved, although this will continue to be an optional part of the application.

The project, either in the community or for a teaching artists’ own teaching practice, must be urgent and timely. Funds must be expended by June 30, 2021.

Learn more and apply here.
