Overview:

Art Works

Art Works is a $3-million grant program for community-based organizations and emerging artists that is designed to support arts, culture and creativity — particularly those working with BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color) individuals and those in other under-served communities. Art Works, the inaugural program from the Forman Arts Initiative, will provide direct grants to artists and organizations that shine a light on Greater Philadelphia’s rich diversity.

Art Works will select four organizations annually to receive two-year, unrestricted grants of up to $200,000 per year.

Four emerging artists will receive two-year grants of up to $10,000 per year. The program is open to both visual and performing artists who have experience working with and connection to communities in Greater Philadelphia.

Grantee organizations will be able to host co-operative education students from Drexel University to enhance their organizational effectiveness.

Art Works creators should aspire to influence Greater Philadelphia’s civic identity and have deep roots in its communities.

For Nonprofits Serving This Population

For Emerging Artists
