The BEEN Grant is a mini-grant for anyone who identifies as a BIPOC artist: Black, Indigenous, or Person of Color.
Each grantee will receive up to $200 for their project. The goal isn’t to (necessarily) fund an entire project but rather help with what could be an expensive single cost or significant barrier to entry to a creative endeavor.
- a microphone for a podcast;
- an Adobe subscription;
- funds toward a camera,
- or new materials (paint, tools, and so on).

Propose a clear project proposal with a clear use of the grant
Strive to disrupt and inspire through their art
Show need for the grant
Clear project proposal and need
Previous work shows potential to complete the proposed project in application
