The Joyce Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2023 Joyce Awards, the foundation’s signature program supporting the creation of high-impact, community-centered works by artists of color in collaboration with organizations located in Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis-St. Paul.
The 2023 Joyce Awards will be awarded to six artists across disciplines, in partnership with arts and community organizations in one of the above Great Lakes cities. Open to artists based anywhere in the world, each $75,000 grant enables the creation and presentation of a new work that engages deeply with and provides long-term benefits to local communities. $25,000 of each grant is awarded directly to the commissioned artist.
Applications must be submitted by the commissioning organization (with 501(c)3 status or with a fiscal sponsor). The deadline for pre-registration is September 7, 2022, with Letters of Inquiry due on September 12, 2022 at 11:59pm CDT.
