In partnership with the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), A.R.T./New York is pleased to announce the 2022 NYSCA-A.R.T./New York Creative Opportunity Fund. The Creative Opportunity Fund provides general operating support grants of $2,000-$5,000 to small professional theatres with budgets under $500,000 working throughout New York State. The program aims to distribute flexible funding to support theatres throughout the state with capacity building and stabilization and to increase funding opportunities for theatres who have been left out of mainstream funding opportunities because of barriers associated with racial, economic, disability, and sexual identity and/or geographic location.
The Creative Opportunity Fund is a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts. A.R.T./New York regrants NYSCA funds, and all applicants and grantees will interact with A.R.T./New York as their grant maker. Payments are made via electronic or paper check, depending on the grantee’s preference.
