Art Stuff Grants and Conversations


The Queens Council On the Arts announced that The Queens Art Fund (QAF) is offering grants to Queens-based individual artists and nonprofit organizations offering distinctive arts and cultural programming that directly serves the community member of Queens.

Individual Artists Grants ($3000) are open to all artistic disciplines who live in or have a studio in Queens. Disciplines include music, theater, and dance; film/video and media arts; literature; and visual arts.

Organization Grants ($1000-$5000) are project-based and support arts and projects that enhance the cultural vibrancy in communities and neighborhoods.

Another item of interest is "Creative Conversations,"  a monthly dinner meeting where you will have the opportunity to network, organize, meet community stakeholders, develop strategies for community advocacy and learn about other QCA opportunities. This is open to the general public and all artists. This is usually held at the Far Rockaway Cultural Performing Arts, 44-19 Rockaway Beach Blvd. 

The Queens Council on the Arts has funded over a hundred individual artist's projects and more than 80 arts organizations this year.
