|Nominations of New York City Arts Organizations Invited for
Union Square Arts Award
Deadline: Nominations are reviewed in the order received.
The Union Square Awards makes annual awards to grassroots organ-
izations working in New York City.
Established in 2006, the awards recognize arts organizations
working with youth and families in low-income communities
throughout New York City in ongoing, innovative, and creative
ways. All artistic disciplines -- dance, theater, music, visual
arts, film, media arts, and creative writing -- are eligible.
The goal is to identify arts projects and organizations making a
significant impact and contribution to the lives of participants
and their communities.
Candidates are identified through a nomination process. Anyone
familiar with an organization's work may submit a nomination
detailing the reasons why the organization should be considered
for an award.
Grants will range from $15,000 to $30,000 each.
For award guidelines, nomination forms, and details on the
program's awardees, visit the Union Square Awards Web site.
