AVAILABLE FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES
The Native Arts and Cultures Foundation (NACF) is now accepting applications two important programs, the LIFT–Early Career Support for Native Artists and the SHIFT – Transformative Change and Indigenous Arts program.
The LIFT–Early Career Support for Native Artists program, is a one-year award for emerging Native artists to develop and realize new projects. The program’s focus is to provide financial support and professional development to artists whose work aims to uplift communities and advance positive social change.
The SHIFT – Transformative Change and Indigenous Art program, supports artist and community-driven projects responding to social change issues through a Native lens. One of the main goals of SHIFT is to draw increased attention to Native communities, perspectives, and challenges, shifting a national narrative of invisibility, misunderstanding, and misappropriation, supporting or focusing on efforts that are built upon community cultural assets, resilience, and strengths.
DEADLINE FOR BOTH OPPORTUNITIES: MARCH 14, 2023, 5:00 p.m. PACIFIC TIME
