Field Foundation’s Art portfolio provides one-time grants to arts organizations and collectives doing culturally anchored, community-centered, and justice-driven work in the Chicago area. We seek proposals created with and led by artists and residents who are directly impacted by historical and systemic injustice, disinvestment, and disempowerment.
We are excited to share that in September 2022, the MacArthur Foundation announced they have made a planning grant to the Field Foundation, which will provide Field with the time and resources to stand up a new program that advances MacArthur’s Culture, Equity and the Arts program.
“We deeply value our longstanding partnership with MacArthur, and we’re excited about exploring the impact we can make together in providing grant support to small- and mid-sized arts organizations,” said Daniel O. Ash, President of the Field Foundation. “At the center of this planning work is our shared commitment to racial equity and its essential role in contributing to a vibrant arts ecosystem in Chicago.”
We look forward to sharing more details at the conclusion of the planning program in spring 2023. If you have questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
In the meantime, here are the broader funding guidelines for Field’s Art portfolio.
