Grants support the wider world
In seeking to strengthen the visual arts in the wider Caribbean region, the Davidoff Art Initiative recognizes that providing opportunities for artists to develop their work and gain contacts and exposure is not enough. Cultural organizations too, have pressing needs. Many are constrained in their efforts to exhibit or promote artists because they lack physical, technological, or financial resources to do so.
Throughout the year, Davidoff Art Grants are awarded to Caribbean cultural institutions, schools, not-for-profits, publications, and the like, assisting in the organizations’ respective efforts to provide exposure to and promote Caribbean artists within a local and regional context.
Grants are rewarded five times in a calendar year. This is a continuous program, so interested parties may apply at any point. However, please ensure that the application occurs in adequate time before the desired activity to receive the grant (artist promotion, community event, research etc) begins. Davidoff requires six weeks to process prospective applications. The grant application for Fall 2017 – Spring 2018 is as follows:
- September – October 2017
- November – December 2017
- January – February 2018
- March – April
Prospective applicants submit their projects online via a dedicated section of Davidoff’s website.
Please ensure that all pertinent information is in place prior to beginning, as the application process must be completed in one go:
- General information (name, website, full contact information)
- Grant information (name of project, activity dates, amount of grant desired)
- Brief background on the organization (including description of project and budget table, prior such activities etc)
Note: incomplete applications will not be considered
