Asylum Arts Small Grants Program

We support Asylum Arts network artists in creative projects that explore Jewish and Israeli ideas, themes, history, and identity. We hope audiences will engage with their work and ultimately start global conversations. Our grants support artistic careers, ensure diverse activity across geography, and strengthen the network of Asylum Arts participants. We only give grants to artists who have previously attended one of our retreats.

We have given out grants to 133 artists in our four rounds of grants. Supported projects approach Jewish and Israeli culture from a variety of perspectives. The projects span diverse disciplines, geographical contexts and thematic elements. Grants of up to $3,000 were given in the following categories: Collaboration with Asylum Arts Network Participants, Creation and Presentation of New Work, and Research and Travel.

Our grants process is closed for 2017. Please check back in September 2018 to apply for the next round of grants.
