The Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge and the National Performance Network envision a world in which artists living and working in Louisiana have the power, resources, and opportunities to thrive. The Get Ready program—in partnership with CERF+—provides $500 grants to individual artists and culture bearers in Louisiana who authentically reflect the many communities in our state. These grants will support activities that will help them prepare for emergencies, safeguard their property and artwork, and protect their creative careers.
ACGBR and NPN are jointly administering the 2023 Get Ready grants, in order to provide more support to artists across Louisiana and share our learning and resources. NPN funds will specifically support BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color) artists and culture bearers.
There is no deadline to apply for Get Ready. Applications will be reviewed for eligibility and grants will be made on a rolling basis. Visit ACGBR’s website for full guidelines and application. Note: BIPOC artist collectives planning to undertake emergency readiness activities as a group, please contact NPN’s Director of Southern Programs Stephanie Atkins at email@example.com to discuss directly.
Get Ready Grants are administered by the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge and the National Performance Network on behalf of CERF+, with funding provided by the Mellon Foundation.
