new grant program offered by NEFA available to artists within Rt. 495:

The New England Foundation for the Arts announces a series of grant workshops to be held across the city of Boston. The workshops will focus on NEFA’s newest initiative, Creative City, a three-year pilot that will make grants to Boston area artists to create works that integrate public participation.

Artists who reside within route 495 in Massachusetts and community organizations in the city of Boston are invited to bring project ideas and questions about applying to Creative City. These workshops are designed to help artists prepare applications, and participants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the program background and the grant guidelines in advance. The summer 2015 workshops are:

July 13, 3:00PM-4:00PM at Hibernian Hall, 184 Dudley St., Boston
July 14, 2:00PM-3:30PM at Mattapan Public Library, 1350 Blue Hill Ave, Mattapan
July 15, 10:30AM-12:00PM at East Boston Public Library, 365 Bremen St., East Boston
July 16, 5:30-7:00PM at Curtis Hall, 20 South Street, Jamaica Plain, MA
July 17, 9:30AM-11AM, at NEFA, 145 Tremont St., 7th Floor, Boston

Creative City will support individual artists, artist collectives, and artistic collaborations in all disciplines and with roots in diverse cultures, forms, and aesthetics. Grants will range from $2,500-$10,000. An additional stipend of up to $2,500 will be available for community partners to help support presentation costs. Creative City is made possible with funding from the Barr Foundation.

Application deadlines for the first year are August 3, 2015, and February 1, 2016. For more information about funding priorities, eligibility, criteria, and to access the online application, visit
