Description

The NYSCA-A.R.T./New York Creative Opportunity Fund (A Statewide Theatre Regrant Program) is a regrant program that provides grants to support either organizational growth or the development of new work for the professional theatre in New York State. This grant addresses small professional theatres with budgets of $500,000 or under and organizations that have a limited administrative capacity. A.R.T./New York regrants NYSCA funds, and all applicants and grantees will interact with A.R.T./New York as their grantmaker. The goals of this grant are to provide a grant funding opportunity with a simple application process accessible to small organizations; offer and/or increase funding to theatre groups and certain individual artists and unincorporated entities that would not otherwise apply to NYSCA; help organizations to grow institutionally as they prepare to apply directly to NYSCA; support high quality, professional theatre that advances the field; and create opportunities for participation in the arts, particularly for historically underserved populations and communities in New York State.

 

Awards for The NYSCA-A.R.T./New York Creative Opportunity Fund (A Statewide Theatre Regrant Program) range from $2,000, to $6,000 and are made in two categories:

OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE

Funding supports the development or presentation of high-quality professional theatre, with a focus on work that expands the form and addresses new or underserved audiences using unique, clearly-defined, strategies.

OPPORTUNITY TO GROW

Funding supports a strategic growth initiative that will help to stabilize the administration of an organization, allow the organization to address a challenge or to grow and professionalize.

 

*Applicants may apply to ONE category each fiscal year.

 Please note: Organizations that applied directly to the NYSCA Theatre Program in the spring of 2019 for FY2020 funding may not apply for Creative Opportunity Funding for 2020. Organizations and artists who applied for Decentralized NYSCA funding through a local arts council for a project may be eligible to apply for Opportunity to Grow funding for FY2020.

Please contact Corinne Woods, Director of Programs, for more information about eligibility requirements and questions. cwoods@art-newyork.org // 212-244-6667 x241

This program is made possible through New York State Council on the Arts, State & Local Partnerships, with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. This program is part of NYFA Learning, which includes professional development for artists and arts administrators.
