Applications are now being accepted for The Picerne Family Foundation’s Artist Outreach Grant open to artists age 55 and older. The Artist Outreach gives accomplished visual, performing and literary artists the opportunity to share their passion and expertise with under-served members of our community.
Selected artists, age 55 and older, contribute to their community by providing educational, mentoring and/or therapeutic art experiences to under-served groups. These art experiences are intended to reach people of any age group who might not otherwise have opportunities to enjoy the benefits of quality arts programs. Artists applying for the grant propose the arts programming they wish to provide, identify the population they are interested in serving, and choose a local nonprofit to collaborate with.
Grant Amount: Artists selected for the grant will receive $15,000 to contribute 6 hours a week to their program with participants over the course of one year.
Eligibility: To be eligible for this grant, artists must be at least 55 years old and live in or plan to serve people in Southern California.
Application Information: The application deadline is March 15, 2023. Artists are encouraged to review the grant information and eligibility requirements, and then contact the Foundation to discuss their intended projects before completing the written application.
