PROJECT GRANTS FOR ORGANIZATIONS


From 2012-2014, Project Grants for Organizations were awarded to arts organizations enabling ambitious socially engaged art projects by placing artists in leaderships roles and building active and sustainable community partnerships.



ARTIST FILES


Artist Files was an experimental, curated grant cycle that selected twenty artists in 2012 to participate in an open, online discourse about their individual projects and the unique traits of socially engaged art. This process helped to shape the criteria for the ABOG Fellowship for Socially Engaged Art. We thank our first Fellows for their insights.
