The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) announced today that more than $30 million will be awarded to nonprofit organizations and individuals across the country for grants in the areas of Art Works, Art Works: Creativity Connects, Challenge America, and Creative Writing Fellowships. National Guild members have received over a half-million dollars in support from this round of funding. Congratulations to all of the recipients!

National Guild members who will receive support for their programming include*:

  • Carnegie Hall, Weill Music Institute, New York, NY
  • Cathedral Arts Project, Jacksonville, FL
  • Center of Creative Arts (COCA), St. Louis, MO
  • Creative Action, Austin, TX
  • Destiny Arts Center, Oakland, CA
  • Harmony Project, Los Angeles, CA
  • Levine Music, Washington D.C.
  • MacPhail Center for Music, Minneapolis, MN
  • Mosaic Youth Theater Ensemble, Detroit, MI

The funds will support programs that provide free dance training in the Ferguson Florissant School District (COCA); bring music instruction to underserved areas (Harmony Project, Levine Music, and Project STEP); immerse youth in film history, media literacy, and film production (RAW Art Works); and heal traumatized youth and families through a multidisciplinary arts residency program (Urban Gateways). Overall, the awards are a testament to the remarkable breadth and depth of our members’ impact.
