The Arts Foundation accepts proposals for collaborative projects, including applications submitted by a collaborative or collective of artists. This does not include organizations which hold official 501(c)3 status. A “collaborator” or “collective member” is someone who is considered to be a co-owner of the project and a generative part of the team. This is not someone who provides services on a “work-for-hire” basis. Please note that each artist/collaborator can apply with only one project in any single award year. Collaboratives must do the following:
- Each collaborative team may have up to three members in total, with a resume or C.V. uploaded for each collaborator.
- Collaborators should be named and their part in the creation of the work should be described in the narrative.

Restrictions
1. Applicants may not be part of the board, staff or be an ensemble member of an organization (e.g., theater company, art film house, etc.) where the work will be presented.
2. Non-profit organizations may not apply.
3. Students currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program, who are taking ¼-time credit classes or more during the project timeline may not apply.
