The Sustainable Arts Foundation is a non-profit foundation supporting artists and writers with families. Their mission is to provide financial awards to parents pursuing creative work.
Too often, creative impulses are set aside to meet the wonderful, but pressing, demands of raising a family. The foundation’s goal is to encourage parents to continue pursuing their creative passion, and to rekindle it in those who may have let it slide.
They welcome applicants from anywhere, but will give some preference to residents of the San Francisco bay area.
The foundation will award the following:
Sustainable Arts Foundation Visual Arts Award: $6,000
Sustainable Arts Foundation Writing Award: $6,000
There will be multiple winners for each award.
Additionally, they will be awarding a number of smaller Promise Awards to those applicants whose work may not qualify for the main awards, but nonetheless demonstrates both skill and potential.
