In 2017, CERF+ will award “Get Ready” Grants of up to $500 to individual artists and up to $1,500 to groups of artists in two grant cycles. The “Get Ready” Grant Program encourages awareness of and provides funding for artists working in craft disciplines to conduct activities that will help safeguard their studios, protect their careers and implement other safety measures to help artists build and sustain strong and resilient careers. Grant funds may be used to purchase goods and/or services that will have a direct impact on protecting an artist’s career and increasing emergency readiness. The application deadline is November 30, 2017. For more information, click here.
