Successful projects value unconventional approaches to art making, critical dialogue, collaboration, and new models of community interface. Applications may address a distinct chapter, aspect, or component of a larger project.

Interventions, site-specific installations, publications, curatorial projects, and web or media-based work are all welcome. Community engagement and collaboration in and outside the arts is encouraged

A narrative, 10 work samples, a resume, and a budget are required. Failure to submit a final report will result in ineligibility for any further grants. recipients must credit the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation in all public communication. Grant dollars will be delivered by December 2024 for the grant year 2025. Grant monies are taxable. We are very excited to hear about your projects and encourage you to apply.
