Mobilizing the Community Through the Arts

Artist and Community Collaboration Initiative

Awards up to $10,000

As part of NACF’s strategy to foster artistic activities in Native communities, we invited Native artists to partner with tribal entities and nonprofit organizations to collaborate on artworks that integrate the community into artistic practice. Artists and organizations were encouraged to plan projects in which the creation of an artwork is central to the project and in which the artist functions primarily as an agent for community development. The artist's work will serve as an interface for community participation, engaging the community in the artist's work and use the making of art to help strengthen the community, draw attention to an important issue, and engage community members in new ways.

Total allocation: $100,000
