Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation (BTCF) - Martha Boschen Porter Fund
07/15/19 11:59 PM (EST)
Grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 to New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts individual artists and organizations in eligible counties to promote artistic advancement and the creation of new work in any arts discipline. Funding is intended to support both emerging artists and established artists in the Berkshire Taconic region who are taking a new artistic direction.
The Boschen Fund for Artists awards grants to artists who work alone or in collaboration with other artists in the creation of new work. The Fund supports artists as they advance to the next level of their development or in the presentation of their work in innovative ways. The core belief of the Boschen Fund is that the world is made a better and more humane place if artists have the resources they need to create work and make it available to the public, and have the opportunity to think in new ways about their future as artists.
The Boschen Fund seeks, in its modest way, to help create a more innovative and nurturing climate for artists in the Berkshire Taconic region by making grants available at important points in an artist's career. While the focus of the fund remains on individual artists, it also accepts proposals from organizations in the region that commission artists or provide artists with new opportunities to work or present their work to new audiences.
Grants may be applied to any expense that may enhance the artist's ability to create new work.
