Ezra Jack Keats Foundation Accepting Minigrant Applications

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Established by children’s book author and illustrator Ezra Jack Keats, the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation
is accepting applications from public schools and public libraries
anywhere in the United States and its territories for program or event
mini-grants of up to $500.

The mini-grants program is intended to support projects that foster
creative expression, collaboration, and interaction with a diverse
community. The funding program provides an opportunity for educators,
whose efforts are often inadequately funded or recognized, to create
special activities outside the standard curriculum and make time to
encourage their students.

Projects funded in the past include murals, pen pal groups, quilts,
theater productions, newspapers and other publications,
intergenerational activities, and programs that bring disparate
communities together.

Public schools and public libraries are eligible to apply. Preschool
head start programs also are eligible. Only public organizations are
eligible; private and parochial schools should not apply. Charter
schools also are ineligible. Applicants must be located in the U.S. or
its commonwealths or territories, including Puerto Rico and Guam. Only
one application from each library or school will be considered.

Complete program guidelines, a video tutorial for applicants, and the
application form are available at the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation Web
site.

William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts Invites Applications From African-American Artists for 2013 Johnson Prize

Friday, August 30th, 2013

The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts
was established in 2001 in honor of William H. Johnson, an American
artist known primarily for his Scandinavian landscapes and his witty and
poignant depictions of African-American daily life.

 

Recognizing that minority artists often need economic assistance the
foundation seeks to encourage artists early in their careers by offering
financial grants. To that end, the foundation is accepting applications
for the 2013 William H. Johnson Prize.

The Johnson Prize is awarded annually to an early career
African-American artist working in the areas of painting, photography,
sculpture, printmaking, installation, and/or new genres. For award
purposes, “early career” is a flexible term that should be interpreted
liberally to include artists who have finished their academic work
within twelve years from the year that the prize is awarded. For
example, a person who finished their studies in 1999 is eligible to
apply in 2011, but not in 2012. Age is not determinative, and artists
who have not earned BFAs or MFAs are still eligible so long as they have
not been working as an artist for more than twelve years.

The 2013 Johnson Prize recipient will receive $25,000. The winner will be announced in December 2013.

For complete program guidelines, application instructions, and
information about previous winners, see the William H. Johnson
Foundation for the Arts Web site.

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Accepting 2014 Fellowship Applications from Artists and Scholars

Friday, August 30th, 2013

 

The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation
provides fellowships for advanced professionals in all fields —
including the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and
creative arts  — except the performing arts.

Often characterized as “midcareer” awards, the fellowships are
intended for individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional
capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in
the arts. The program seeks to further the development of scholars and
artists by helping them engage in research in any field of knowledge and
creation in any of the arts, under the freest possible conditions.

 

For this year’s program, the foundation is only offering fellowships
to citizens and permanent residents of the United States and Canada. The
annual competition for citizens and permanent residents of Latin
America and the Caribbean has been suspended for 2014 while the
foundation reviews the workings and efficacy of the program.

Fellowships provide grants to selected individuals over a time period
between six and twelve months. Since the purpose of the program is to
help provide fellows with blocks of time in which they can work with as
much creative freedom as possible, fellows may spend their grant funds
in any manner they deem necessary to their work.

 

Support is only available to individuals. Fellowships are not
available for the creation of residencies, curriculum development, or
any type of educational program, nor are they available to support the
development of Web sites or blogs.
The foundation understands the performing arts to be those in which an
individual interprets work created by others. Accordingly, the
foundation will provide fellowships to composers but not conductors,
singers, or instrumentalists; choreographers but not dancers;
filmmakers, playwrights, and performance artists who create their own
work but not actors or theater directors.

Grant amounts vary, and the foundation does not guarantee it will fully fund any project.

See the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Web site for complete program guidelines and applications instructions.

RISCA and Gamm Collaborate on RI Foundation-funded “Center for Teaching Artists”

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013
For Immediate Release

Contact: Gail Hulbert
gail@gammtheatre.org

 

 

THE GAMM THEATRE TO HOUSE AND ADMINISTER STATE’S FIRST RESOURCE CENTER FOR  PROFESSIONAL TEACHING ARTISTS
PAWTUCKET, RI (August  28, 2013)  -  The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre (The Gamm) in collaboration with Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) is pleased to announce the creation of the Rhode Island Teaching Artists Center (RITAC) aimed at connecting Rhode Island-based teaching artists with job opportunities in the public and private sector. The center, funded by a $29,900 grant from the Rhode Island Foundation, will be housed at and administered by The Gamm Theatre. RISCA will be providing additional funds, as well as staff assistance.
The foundation’s support for the initiative came out of a national study on the state of teaching artists and the future of arts education, headed by arts and cultural policy analyst Nick Rabkin at NORC at the University of Chicago. Providence was one of the 12 cities included in the project, which has provided the largest data set on teaching artists in the United States to date.
“The study found that teaching artists bring innovative teaching methods and curriculum into schools. Developing collaborative professional development opportunities like these were among the key recommendations to support the future of arts learning,” said Mary-Kim Arnold, the foundation’s grant officer for arts and culture. “We are pleased to see The Gamm working with RISCA to lead this effort for the benefit of Rhode Island teaching artists and for the diverse communities they serve.”
RISCA Education Director Sherilyn Brown reiterated the need for professional development in the field.

“Teaching artists around the country have fostered academic learning, social and emotional growth, creative thinking and innovation, and health and healing with all ages and in diverse kinds of settings, from school rooms to corporate board rooms, to community centers, to nursing homes and hospitals,” said Brown. “Yet the profession of the teaching artist has gone largely unsupported and unrecognized.  The RITAC project is an exciting opportunity to support and promote one of Rhode Island’s most valuable natural resources, our teaching artists. “
Starting in September, RITAC aims to establish a physical and virtual resource for mentoring, professional development, employment opportunities, and marketing assistance, among other needs. The center will also evaluate the impact of teaching artists within government, business, health care, social services, creative industries and K-16 education, with an emphasis on greater collaboration. Teaching artists will be invited to share pedagogy, methodology, lesson plans, employment opportunities and ideas for improving the profession. A website, now under development, will serve as a virtual platform to share that information. Additionally, the center will host bi-monthly meetings and workshops covering such topics as the growing role of the TA in the healthcare field, raising a family while working as a TA, and how to explain your work and document results. A steering committee of local arts education leaders will oversee and evaluate the year-long pilot program, with newly hired Project Director Arik Beatty coordinating events and researching similar programs across the country.
The Gamm Theatre’s Education Department has been serving the Pawtucket School Department since 2006, supplementing its small staff of in-house teaching artists with freelancers in order to meet the growing need. In recent years, that work has expanded beyond the classroom to include non-profit organizations and social service agencies such as The Autism Project and the RI Department of Health.
“Despite the documented value of the teaching artist in all learning and healing environments, there is a distinct lack of support systems to bridge the gap between professional TAs and those industries that would benefit from their skills,” said Gamm Education Director Steve Kidd. “As one of only two year-round professional theaters in the state, The Gamm is proud to collaborate with RISCA to address this need in a very practical way.”
ABOUT THE GAMM THEATRE
Founded in 1984 as Alias Stage, the non-profit Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre creates the finest of live theater, engaging the audience intensely in current and recurrent issues of consequence. The Gamm further serves the public with educational outreach programming designed to support the theatrical experience, and help sustain and enhance the intellectual and cultural life of its community. The Gamm is a member of New England Area Theatre (NEAT), a bargaining unit of the Actors’ Equity Association.
ABOUT RHODE ISLAND STATE COUNCIL ON THE ARTS
The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts is a state agency, supported by appropriations from the Rhode Island General Assembly and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. RISCA provides grants, technical assistance and staff support to arts organizations and artists, schools, community centers, social service organizations and local governments to bring the arts into the lives of Rhode Islanders.
ABOUT THE RHODE ISLAND FOUNDATION
The Rhode Island Foundation is the largest and most comprehensive funder of nonprofit organizations in Rhode Island.  In 2012, the Foundation made grants of more than $30.4 million to organizations addressing Rhode Island’s most pressing issues and needs of diverse communities. Through leadership, fundraising and grantmaking activities, often in partnership with individuals and organizations, the Foundation is helping our state reach its true potential.

Spark Grants, a competitive grants program conceived of and funded by Letitia and John Carter, offer 3rd grade classroom teachers in
Providence up to $1,000 for projects that engage students through unique experiences and creative learning methods and stimulate student interest in relevant educational topics.

It is hoped that, over time, this program will inspire creativity, exchange of ideas, and experimentation among teachers. Spark Grants are

    charters physically located in Providence, may apply for these
    competitive grants.

Applications must be submitted by midnight (EST) on October 18, 2013. Please note that no assistance will be available after 5 p.m. (EST). A
