This is a new funding opportunity for organizations meeting the eligibility requirements noted above. This grant will serve as a pilot program for ArtsMemphis as we redesign our arts investments to focus on strengthening our local communities through the arts, and define success in part based on the community impact of an organization or their programming. This funding is intended to provide support for ongoing organizational priorities.
These criteria will be used as a guide by review panel members to assess each application.
