Make Art Grant

Coming soon! Full details of this new grant program will be available in January 2022, and the first application deadline is April 1, 2022.

What: Make Art Grant
Who: Artists that live in Rhode Island, and are over the age of 18.
Funds: Creation of art, in all disciplines.
Amount: $500 to $3,000.

The Make Art Grant program provides grants of up to $3,000 for artists to create or continue specific artwork in any discipline. Projects must have specific goals, though completion and public showing of the art is not required. Projects must be artist instigated and organized, outside of institutional support and structures. Open to projects of all arts disciplines, from artists of all levels, funds can be used to support experimentation, materials, space rental, paying collaborators, documentation, and artist stipends. All Make Art grantees may participate in a work in progress showing, organized by RISCA staff. You can apply for any amount between $500 and $3,000 – we strongly encourage you to apply for the LEAST amount of funding you need to do this project. Money is limited, and we want to be able to support as many artists as possible.
