About Creative Learning
APPLICATIONS FOR 2022 ARE NOW CLOSED. FUNDING NOTIFICATIONS WILL BE SENT IN FEBRUARY.
Creative Learning is a grant program designed to support and develop the capacity of Manhattan’s teaching artists and small arts organizations to provide in-depth, community-based arts education and enrichment projects and programming to participants of all ages including youth, adults, and/or seniors. The program aims to support effective and innovative approaches to artist-led, age- and skills-appropriate instruction outside of the school setting, as well as education-based approaches to participatory arts projects. This program supports projects serving communities from Inwood to the Battery taking place between January 1 – December 31, 2022.
The program funding provided by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs’ Greater New York Arts Development Fund, and the New York State Council on the Arts’ (NYSCA) Statewide Community Regrants (formerly the Decentralization program).
