Individual Artists' Grants. Check it out!

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at 6:43PM

The City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) 2013-2014 Individual Artist Grants are now available.

The City of Los Angeles offers fellowships annually to honor 10–15 of Los Angeles' most creative design, literary, media, performing and visual artists. These awards allow the selected architects, graphic/product designers, poets, fiction writers, video/filmmakers, choreographers-dancers, musicians, theatrical performance artists, sculptors, painters and photographers to create new works that the City premieres in group presentations. Eligible artists must demonstrate an active exhibition and/or production record of at least 15 years, which may include productions/presentations while the applicant was a student.

The Residency Program supports artists in providing community-based, participatory projects in self-selected non-arts venues throughout the City of Los Angeles in order to gather, connect, and inspire audiences with little or no exposure to artistic and cultural opportunities. Residency projects engage participants in a series of artist-led workshops that are highly participatory and/or educational, and which match thoughtful and meaningful exchanges with appropriate audiences at host organizations in each City Council District. Eligible applicants must demonstrate at least two years of experience in instructing participants in any artistic discipline.

Applications for residencies are due Friday, October 12 and fellowship applications are due Friday, October 26.

DCA will start offering workshops for the residency program on Thursday, September 20, at the Eagle Rock Branch Library, 5027 Caspar Ave., from 6:00–7:45 pm, and for fellowships on Saturday, September 29, at the Echo Park Branch Library, 1410 W. Temple Street, 12:00–1:45 pm.

Check out the DCA website and the Los Angeles Business Assistance Virtual Network. DCA offers grants to individual artists for community residencies and artist fellowships.
