The BEEN Rising Grant is a mini-grant for anyone who identifies as a BIPOC artist.
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)
The application will be open from January 25th, 2019 to February 25th, 2019. Grantees will be contacted individually and then announced on social media.
