An Arts Alive Artist Grant provides direct support to an individual professional artist for the creation of new work. An essential element of this funding is a community engagement component. The project must engage a segment of the community through a public program, such as an exhibition or performance that is open to the public, and/or the inclusion of community involvement in the development and creative process of the artists’ project. This can be in the form of feedback, response, interaction and/or social practice by or with community members. Some examples of this type of interaction are interviews with a segment of the community, creation of parallel work by a community group, or stories and anecdotes collected from a community group that relate to the concept or content of the project.
An Arts Alive Artist Grant is designed to increase support for local artist-initiated activity and to highlight the role of artists as important members of the community. These grants are intended to support creative (not interpretive) artists interested in working within a community setting.
Artists may submit only one request for an Individual Artist grant.

What is an Arts Alive Education Grant?
An Arts Alive Education Grant provides support for partnerships between individual artists or arts organizations and Westchester or Rockland public schools (grades K-12), learning centers, and community sites. The Arts Education category has two funding priorities:
1) K-12 In-School Projects and
2) After-School and Community-based Learning.
Funds can support arts education projects that take place in-school during the school day and/or in after-school and community-based settings for youth and/or senior learners. Emphasis is placed on the depth and quality of the creative process through which participants learn through or about the arts. Inter-curricular collaboration for in-school projects is encouraged but not required.
Projects must focus on the exploration of art and the artistic process, and center on the development and implementation of sequential, skill-based study that incorporates one or more art forms and includes a minimum of three (3) hands-on learning sessions with the same students and teacher. ArtsWestchester encourages projects that integrate the arts into the curriculum, but curriculum integration is not required. The primary goal is to provide students of all ages with rich artistic learning experiences.
For applicants working in partnership with a public school:
A letter of commitment from the partner school to the arts organization or artist must be included with the application in order to be eligible for funding. The letter of commitment must outline in detail the partner(s) support of the project (monetarily and otherwise) and anticipated roles and responsibilities for each partner involved. The partnership letter should be on the partner(s) letterhead and signed by the principal.
For applicants working in partnership with a Community-based Organization:
A letter of commitment from the community-based partner to the artist, arts organization, or unincorporated entity must be included with the application in order to be eligible for funding. The letter of commitment must outline in detail the partner(s) support of the project (monetarily and otherwise) and anticipated roles and responsibilities for each partner involved. The partnership letter should be on the partner(s) letterhead and signed by the director of the partner organization.
We recommend that support materials include lesson plans, evaluation plan, video/photo work samples of past Arts Education work, participant evaluation forms, and letters of recommendation.
**Please note - applicants may only have one active draft at a time per category. If you plan to submit more than one application you  must complete the first submission before beginning the next**
