New Sun Rising with support from The Heinz Endowments is pleased to announce this Request for Proposals as part of the Transformative Arts Process (TAP), a Heinz Endowments’ grants program focused on fostering the careers of teaching artists and bringing transformative arts experiences to youth.
Transformative Arts Process’s specific goal is to move towards a more Just Pittsburgh by invigorating the field of teaching artists and arts organizations that have a demonstrated practice of challenging structural inequities, bringing transformative arts centered experience to youth in and from African American/ ‘distressed’ communities.
Interested applicants can determine their eligibility by reviewing the TAP Program Rationale and Allegheny County’s list of ‘distressed’ neighborhoods. Program Description, Application Guidelines, Support Information, and Complete Application Packet can be found below. The Transformative Teaching Artist Award peer panel looks forward to reviewing your application when received by the due date of May 10, 2017.
