Art Works Grants

The National Endowment for the Arts is committed to support activities that reflect the dynamic, diverse, and evolving nature of the media arts field. Applicants may apply in this Art Works category for media arts projects that support creation, exhibition, education, and distribution of historic and contemporary artworks in all genres and forms that use electronic media, film and technology (analog & digital; old and new) as an artistic medium or a medium to broaden arts appreciation and awareness (of any discipline). All genres are welcome to apply; all phases of project support are eligible.

Art Works applications will be accepted at two deadlines; project types vary for each deadline. Apply at the deadline with the project type that most closely corresponds to the primary activities within your proposed project (see below for more details). All organizations must apply directly on their own behalf; applications through a fiscal sponsor are not allowed.
