Grant Description

-An organization may submit only one application through one of the following FY 2015 categories: Art Works or Challenge America Fast-Track. -The Arts Endowment's support of a project may start on or after June 1, 2015. The guiding principle of рArt Worksс is at the center of everything we do at the NEA. рArt Worksс refers to three things: the works of art themselves, the ways art works on audiences, and the fact that art is work for the artists and arts professionals who make up the field. To make "art work," the NEA has included the advancement of innovation as a core component of its mission as a way to ensure the vitality of the arts. We recognize that arts and design organizations are often in the forefront of innovation in their work and strongly encourage innovative projects which are characterized as those that: ╔ Are likely to prove transformative with the potential for meaningful change, whether in the development or enhancement of new or existing art forms, new approaches to the creation or presentation of art, or new ways of engaging the public with art; ╔ Are distinctive, offering fresh insights and new value for their fields and/or the public through unconventional solutions; and ╔ Have the potential to be shared and/or emulated, or are likely to lead to other advances in the field. Through the projects that we support in the Art Works category, we want to achieve the following four outcomes: ╔ Creation: The creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, ╔ Engagement: Public engagement with diverse and excellent art, ╔ Learning: Lifelong learning in the arts, and ╔ Livability: The strengthening of communities through the arts.
