The Sustainable Arts Foundation is offering $5000 awards to writers and artists with children. The money can be used for costs such as child care, workspaces, new equipment, research and travel.
The Sustainable Arts Foundation was founded in 2010 with the aim of encouraging parents to continue pursuing their creative passion, and to rekindle it in those who may have let it slide.
In 2017 the foundation has increased its funding and will make its $5000 awards to twenty artists and writers. The awards are offered as unrestricted cash, and recipients can use the funds as they see fit.
To be eligible to apply for a grant you must have at least one child under the age of 18. Applicants can be based anywhere in the world and there are no citizenship restrictions.
Writers may apply in one of the following categories:
Since 2016 the organizers have committed to offering half of its awards to applicants of color. Further information about this initiative is available on the Foundation’s website.
Applications for the Fall 2017 round close on Thursday August 31th. For further information visit the Sustainable Arts Foundation website.
