ABOUT THE GRANTS OFFERED:
WHO: A parent-artist creating in the United States seeking funding for general artistic and/or general professional childcare support or project-specific childcare support. Union membership not required. All theatrical disciplines and administrative positions are eligible to apply for these grants. Pregnant Parent Artists and Artists in Late Stages of the Adoption Process are welcome and qualified to apply.
TIME ACCESSIBILITY: While the application has multiple questions in order to create a thorough profile of need, many questions are multiple choice and check-box and there are no long-form cover letters or answers require. We recognize that time is a limited resource for many artists, especially those who parent, and hope that our form’s efficiency alleviates some of that obstacle to make this grant application more accessible.
SUBMIT AND EDIT AS NEEDED UNTIL APPLICATIONS CLOSE: When hitting “submit” on your application, it will be saved and received. You will then receive an email confirmation of submission with a button to “edit response.” You may edit your application as many times as needed until applications close on Nov. 1, 2018. We will only review the final submissions after the closing date.
PAAL CHILDCARE FUND PARTNERSHIPS
EXTERNAL GRANT OPPORTUNITIES
“The Sustainable Arts Foundation is a non-profit foundation supporting artists and writers with families. Our mission is to provide financial awards to parents pursuing creative work.
Too often, creative impulses are set aside to meet the wonderful, but pressing, demands of raising a family. The foundation’s goal is to encourage parents to continue pursuing their creative passion, and to rekindle it in those who may have let it slide.”
SPACE on Ryder Farm
“All family residents (parents and children) will take part in three communal farm-fresh meals daily. SPACE will facilitate creative and nature-focused programming for the children, culminating in an informal group share. Simultaneously SPACE supports the adult artists by creating an environment with structured time and space to create (as well as structured time and space to be with their children). The response from residents and the larger community has been resoundingly positive and the high demand for this program has compelled SPACE to expand the residency in 2017, making a second week available to more families…”
