New grant-making program supports inclusivity in the arts

ArtsWave announced a new grant-making program – ArtsWave Pride. The program’s purpose is to promote, celebrate and create inclusive arts experiences that may appeal to or have relevance to the broader LGBTQIA community.

More than 1,500 people are members of ArtsWave Pride – a group that launched in ArtsWave’s 2018 Community Campaign. Members unite around a common interest in the arts with the goal of making new connections, exploring new ideas and deepening their roots in the region. Gifts from ArtsWave Pride Ambassadors and 10 percent of incremental gifts from ArtsWave Pride members provided the initial seed funding to launch the grant program.

Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to projects that advance Cincinnati’s reputation as a welcoming and inclusive community through the arts. Funding is available to support the development of new programming, as well as short-term operating support for existing programming with a demonstrated, inclusive impact.

Organizations with a primary mission to provide programs or activities in areas directly concerned with arts or cultural heritage for the public are encouraged to apply.

Deadline to submit applications is Friday, Nov. 2.
