Select NEA Funded Grants in Each State #Morethanart
When someone hears about the recent debate around cutting funding to the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), they may have an idea in mind about the types of projects they think the NEA funds. And so the #morethanart campaign was created as a tool to help people inside and outside of the arts understand the breadth of projects the NEA funds.
For the last month we have highlighted NEA grants awarded in the three eastern regionals:
- New England Foundation for the Arts
- Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation
- South Arts.
We selected projects based on their potential return on investment, focusing on projects with a commercial or economic component. These projects are less about the distinct traditional creative industries (theater, fine arts, film, music, etc…). And more interdisciplinary and focused on creative economy.
These types of projects focus on education, arts/ science/ technology, design, media, creative place-making and community planning. As such, these projects have a regional economic impact or can impact an artist’s ability to be self-supporting.
