Stipends Available for Educational Content Creators

To support underrepresented Teaching Artists in the region during the COVID-19 crisis, the newly formed Creative Learning Network, led by Allegheny Partners for Out-of-School Time (APOST), Arts Ed Collaborative (AEC), and the Legacy Arts Project (LAP), has created Creative Learning Rapid Response. Creative Learning Rapid Response is an initiative where teaching artists can create #ArtsLearningatHome content and receive stipends for their work.

Be sure to check the our #ArtsLearningAtHome page for a compendium of the resources created so far!

All #ArtsLearningatHome ideas are welcome!

While this is a time of great distress for all, it is with great intention to grant the majority of funds to teaching artists who identify as part of historically underrepresented communities that have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID crisis. This includes:

  • BIPOC – Black, Indigenous, Teaching Artists of Color
  • LGBTQIA+ Teaching Artists
  • Early Career & Elder Teaching Artists
  • Teaching Artists living with Disabilities

Please see the FAQ for additional details, timeline, review process, and eligibility requirements before applying. A PDF copy of the application is available for advance review.
