Intercultural Arts Project Committee (ICAP) Grant
Available for Faculty and Students
Established at CalArts in 1988 to help increase and sustain the presence of artists from many cultures (emphasis on artists who live and work beyond the Eurocentric sphere while maintaining the aesthetic perspective of their specific backgrounds). The Project seeks to foster the mutual exchange of aesthetic, social, and political concerns through artistic interaction among diverse artists, the CalArts community, and the wider constituencies of Southern California.
Proposals should include an instructional component and an event. The event should be open to the entire Institute and take place during the academic year. Faculty should be directly involved in the project. There is an expectation of financial support from the School that is sponsoring the project. Funding may be used to provide travel for artists.
Schools, programs or individuals may submit project proposals for consideration. Grant applications are reviewed by the Grants Subcommittee of the Equity & Diversity Committee.
The subcommittee assesses and ranks the applications on the basis of the following criteria:
- Clarity with which the project articulates how it addresses/engages with issues of diversity.
- Clarity and viability of the project.
- Accessibility/engagement/participation of the larger CalArts community.
Please submit the following:
Deadlines: Applications are due by the 1st of each month during the academic year.
