For reference, click here for last year's grant information.
Arts and Health Grant supports art programs and artist residencies with health-related goals that take place in health-based or community spaces. The grant funds both “non-clinical arts engagements that promote and facilitate individual health” and “public arts activities that provide a public health benefit in Rhode Island communities”.
The arts have the capacity to transform the lives of individuals and communities, contributing to health, well-being, and overall resilience. This grant program acknowledges that arts and culture facilitate the physical, cognitive, and socio-emotional aspects of individual healing, and that when applied to public health, promote healthy environments and policies in communities by fostering empathy, awareness, and social cohesion through shared narrative and aesthetic experiences.
Deadline: April 1, 2024
