New Grant!

Grant Purpose
The purpose of this grant is to help artists with disabilities take immediate actions which allow them to create, participate, and learn, ultimately fostering a more inclusive society. Creative expression is integral to personal growth and vibrant communities. Lippman Kanfer Family Foundation (LKFF) seeks to take action and has created this one-time grant opportunity by providing funds to individual artists with disabilities who face barriers to access. This funding is open to artists living in Ohio and pursuing any art form (visual, performance, digital, literary, etc.). Since the purpose of the grant is action and access, projects which are ready to go with short project timelines are preferred.
