Make Art and Change with a grant from Leeway Foundation

Applications for the project-based grants are due August 1.

Leeway Foundation’s Art and Change grant provides project-based grants of up to $2,500 to women and trans artists in the Delaware Valley region to fund art for social change projects. The grants are available to artists of all mediums, traditional and nontraditional.

Leeway defines art for social change as “art that positively affects and respectfully engages communities and audiences. Creating social change must be integral to the ideas, beliefs, and goals that are woven throughout your art and your process of creating and sharing your art.”

Leeway encourages artists to apply if they are a woman or trans artist who:

  • Has an art for social change project or opportunity that impacts a larger group, audience, or community.
  • Has financial need and limited or no access to other financial resources.
  • Has a project supported by or in collaboration with a Change Partner (a person, organization, or business that is a part of the project in some way).
  • Lives in the Delaware Valley area: Bucks, Camden, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, or Philadelphia County

Change partners can be someone the artist has built a relationship with who is a member of the community that the project seeks to engage or in which it takes place, or a person, organization, or business that has an interest in or connection to the project in some form. Eligible Change Partners may include mentors, editors, collectives, art spaces, theaters, nonprofit organizations, dance studios, radio stations, and production companies.

The deadline to apply for the current round of grants is August 1. Learn more and apply for the grants on Leeway Foundation’s website.
