2022 ArtsWave Pride Grant Program in the US
The ArtsWave is currently accepting applications for the 2022 ArtsWave Pride Grant Program to provide funding for arts or cultural heritage projects that promote and/or celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community, advancing Cincinnati’s reputation as a welcoming and inclusive community through the arts.
In alignment with ArtsWave’s intention to promote and celebrate all the ways that the region is diverse, and to create inclusive arts experiences that are also exciting and innovative, the ArtsWave Pride Grant Program requests proposals for projects that may appeal to or have relevance to the broader LGBTQIA+ community.
This grant program is designed to provide both seed funding to support the development of new programming, as well as short-term operating support for existing programming with a demonstrated impact of inclusivity.
