ARTogether's Mini-Grants for Artists

Edward Gunawan, Mini-Grant Recipient: "Project: Press Play"

ARTogether’s Mini-Grants for Bay Area refugee and immigrant artists awards $500 to artists for work on a current or ongoing art project. Grant funds may be used for artist supplies, equipment, costumes, to pay for editing or other professional work.


Preference will be given to refugee artists and to projects which are beyond the development stage.


Applications are received on an ongoing basis, with specific consideration given to that month’s genre focus. To be considered for a specific genre month, please submit your application no later than the 25th of the preceding month. 

If you have applied once and do not receive the grant that month, you do not need to apply again next month. We will consider all applications from all previous months each time we make a selection. Each artist may only receive the grant once.


Artists must provide a follow-up to tell us how the money was spent and where the project has reached, 3 months after receiving the grant.


Artists should be willing to share a story about their life and work, which ARTogether will use for social media, newsletters, etc. The artist can choose to share their name and identity, so we can promote their work, or to remain anonymous.
