SPArt is a funding initiative that supports Los Angeles-based Social Practice Art projects. We provide financial resources to artists who intend to create social change through socially engaged art. These projects work in cooperation with communities and address or respond to current social issues and conditions. SPArt aims to empower the artists and the work as agents of change.
What We Fund
Once a year, one SPArt Grant of $10,000 is awarded to a Los Angeles based project that engages audiences, promotes participation, and foster social change. The SPArt Grant is nomination based.
Additionally, through partnership with key community members, SPArt awards various SPArt Community Grants throughout the year. SPArt Community Grants are open application and are awarded to Los Angeles based projects that meet the grant prompts put forth by our partners.
We fund projects that enable artists as leaders and change-makers, that encourage lasting relationships with communities, and that require community involvement.
SPArt is fiscally sponsored by the Ford Theatre Foundation.
