Asian Women Giving Circle Request for Proposals 2016

Asian Women Giving Circle
Request for Proposals 2016
Women, Arts & Progressive Social Change
Deadline to Apply: Friday, March 11, 2016, 5 pm EST
Asian Women Giving Circle (AWGC) believes culture is an essential part of any strategy for social change. We support Asian American women-led organizations and individual artists in NYC who are using arts and culture to:
  • bring about progressive social transformation,
  • raise awareness and catalyze action around critical issues that affect Asian American women, girls and families, and
  • highlight and promote women’s central role as leaders, creators, developers and managers of these projects.
In this 2016 grants cycle, we anticipate that 5-8 project grants will be awarded, contingent on available funding. The maximum grant amount is $15,000.

2016 PLACE Arts & Healing Workshop Series — Applications Due: December 15


2016 PLACE Arts & Healing Workshop Series
Applications Due: December 15
The 2016 Place Workshop Series is presented by Asian American Women Artists Association (AAWAA) under the direction of Cynthia Tom and Dr. Trinity Ordona and with the support of CAMERON HOUSE, San Francisco.

This semester-long workshop series is for women ready to ignite their creative selves and take ownership of their happiness. No art experience is necessary, only the willingness to learn.

We work towards creating an artistic answer to this question by unraveling beliefs that hold women back, excavating family patterns, discovering aspirations, and intuitively creating art through use of found objects.
