Applications for the Arts Build Community Rapid Response Small Grants are being accepted by the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation for the year 2022.
Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation’s Arts Build Community project promotes the testing of innovative concepts to improve community participation via its grantmaking component. This is made possible through the arts and creative process, which is notably prevalent among people of color, youth, immigrants, and locals. People who want to engage in arts and cultural activities but are unable to do so due to barriers such as expense, transportation, or a lack of knowledge of the arts in the Berkshires.
To that end, the Berkshire County Community Foundation (BTCF) aims to foster innovation among Berkshire County’s nonprofit arts, cultural, and community groups. As a result of the epidemic, organizations that deliver substantial arts and cultural programming are launching new initiatives, expanding current programs, collaborating with other groups, and pivoting to virtual and socially remote events.
Worth of Award
- Grants will be awarded in the amount of $7,500 per organization. A total of $60,000 is offered for all categories.
