Art Meets Activism

In our recent artist needs survey most respondents supported changing the spring grants cycle to reflect artist’s needs during COVID-19. Therefore, the Arts Meets Activism (AMA) grant cycle will be offered in Fall 2021. 


The online application for AMA 2021 is open. You can learn about the application process and preview this year’s application questions by clicking here. Applications for AMA 2021 are due Friday, September 3, 2021, at 5 pm ET.


The AMA grant supports feminist artists and organizations in Kentucky to engage individuals and communities in artmaking that directly advances positive social change.


Applicants should be able to demonstrate their commitment to feminism, their ability to engage community members, and have a concrete plan for positive social change through arts-based activities.


Applicants may request funds for a range of art activities that address social change including but not limited to: community participation in creating art; collaborative or individualized artmaking with women and/or girls, artists’ creation of new work in a community context; arts education programs primarily focused on women or girls; developing an organizational diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) plan; or adapting technology to address community accessibility needs due to COVID.


Applicants to the AMA grant program, like the AE grant program, should show high artistic quality in the work sample, and should be able to demonstrate their commitment to feminism and their understanding of the relationship between art and social change. Both grant programs are arts-based and feminist in nature.
