Queerlective Announces BIPOC Artist Exchange and Activation Grant to Uplift New England's Diverse Artistic Voices
[Manchester, January 5, 2023] — Queerlective, a community-driven organization committed to fostering inclusivity and celebrating diversity in the arts, is thrilled to unveil its latest initiative: the BIPOC Artist Exchange and Activation Grant. This groundbreaking program aims to empower and elevate Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) artists throughout New England by connecting them to opportunities to showcase their invaluable contributions to the arts community of New Hampshire.
Empowering Artists, Inspiring Change
Queerlective believes that art knows no boundaries and that creativity thrives when diverse voices come together. The BIPOC Artist Exchange and Activation Grant is designed to break down barriers and make it easier for BIPOC artists to engage with New Hampshire's vibrant art scene. The grant offers up to $300 to cover travel expenses, registration fees, and an hourly stipend for the artist during the event, creating a supportive environment for artists to share their work.
The BIPOC Artist Exchange and Activation Initiative is designed to showcase the contributions of BIPOC artists to the New England art community, empowering and inspiring local artists by introducing them to artists from outside our community.
Who Can Apply?
The BIPOC Artist Exchange and Activation Grant is open to any BIPOC artist residing in New England, regardless of their artistic medium. Whether you're a painter, sculptor, musician, poet, or any form of creative, Queerlective welcomes your application. There are no restrictions on the type of event you can participate in— as long as you're sharing your art with the New Hampshire community, you're eligible!
