ART WORKS: Creativity Connects Projects
Creativity Connects* is an initiative that shows how the arts contribute to the nation’s creative ecosystem, investigates how support systems for the arts are changing, explores how the arts can connect with other sectors that want and utilize creativity, and invests in innovative projects to spark new, collaborative ideas.
A key component of Creativity Connects is a grant opportunity in the Art Works category that supports collaborative, mutually beneficial partnerships between the arts and non-arts sectors, specifically:
- Business and Economic Development
Art Works: Creativity Connects projects mutually benefit both the arts and non-arts sectors by:
- Demonstrating the beneficial contributions of artists and creative work to societal health.
- Supporting the infrastructure for the arts to work in new ways with new sectors.
- Building bridges that create new relationships and constituencies.
- Creating innovative partnership projects to advance common goals.
An organization may submit only one application for an Art Works: Creativity Connects grant.
- Duke Internal Deadline: March 1, 2017
- Sponsor Deadline: May 4, 2017
Nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3), U.S. organizations; units of state or local government; or federally recognized tribal communities or tribes may apply. Applicants may be arts organizations, local arts agencies, arts service organizations, local education agencies (school districts), and other organizations that can help advance the goals of the National Endowment for the Arts.
All grants require a nonfederal match of at least 1 to 1. For example, if an organization receives a $20,000 grant, the total eligible project costs must be at least $40,000 and the applicant organization must provide at least $20,000 toward the project from nonfederal sources.
Grants generally will range from $20,000 to $100,000. No grants will be made below $20,000. Grants of $100,000 or more will be made only in rare instances, and only for projects that we determine demonstrate exceptional national or regional significance and impact.
Applicants whose grants are recommended for less than the amount that is requested will have the opportunity to revise the project budget to reflect any necessary changes to the project, based on the recommended funding amount. We reserve the right to limit support of a project to a particular portion(s) or cost(s).
