Arts Initiative: Call for Collaborative Projects (due Apr 26)

Call for Collaborative Projects
Deadlines: April 26, 2023 and September 25, 2023

The Arts Initiative seeks large-scale collaborative projects to activate the campus; increase arts engagement for students, faculty, and staff, and the region; and catalyze discovery through interdisciplinary partnerships. The Initiative is interested in a broad scope of projects that may be local, regional, national, or international and that reflect collaboration, involve multiple units/organizations, promote engagement and the growth of new and diverse audiences, and aligns with the mission of the university and Arts Initiative. The Initiative is interested in seeing some projects that may be thematically related to other broad campus/community initiatives. Several projects will be selected each year that reflect a diversity of artistic, intellectual, and expressive modes, as well as audiences.


The Arts Initiative invites project proposals related to the Fall 2023 theme Arts & Resistance. Projects can be designed and implemented by a unit, staff person, or faculty member. Examples of projects could include art-making workshops, public performances, exhibitions, or support for guest speakers and visiting artists. AWARD AMOUNT: UP TO $25,000; DEADLINE TO APPLY: MONDAY, AUGUST 14, 2023
