Newark Arts To Open Application Process For ArtStart Grants In January

(NEWARK, NJ) -- If you are an artist with an idea for a community project, a resident seeking to collaborate with a local arts organization, a non-profit that is servicing Newark’s youth, or a school with an arts education program that needs funding, you may be eligible to receive an ArtStart grant from Newark Arts.  Applications will open for the annual mini-grant program on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.  Applications close on March 22, 2019.

ArtStart provides funding to organizations and individuals to create music, dance, theatre, film, visual and literary art projects that benefit the residents and neighborhoods of Newark. Winning proposals will be awarded grants ranging up to $3,000 each. 

“Last year, we awarded nineteen grants.  And we plan to do even more in 2019,” said Newark Arts Executive Director Jeremy Johnson. “We are looking for proposals that that will infuse arts into the community while providing opportunities for amazing artists.” 

ArtStart was established in 2001, with the mission to nurture arts and cultural activities throughout the city of Newark, especially for youth and under-served populations. Since its inception, Newark Arts has made over 150 ArtStart grants, totaling more than $500,000. 

ArtStart has funded schools of music and dance, local galleries, film and book projects, programs for children and seniors, and multidisciplinary community initiatives including neighborhood development plans.
