Established in 2013 and building on our legacy of funding for the arts, Astraea’s Global Arts Fund supports, showcases and connects impactful art by LGBTQI people and organizations that are using art as a tool for social transformation and have limited access to resources for this critical work. Through a nomination process that engages Astraea grantee partners and community members, we consider submissions across mediums and disciplines, including video, film, poetry, fictional prose, photography, painting, performance, dance, theater, music and other interdisciplinary expressions.
Our last three Global Arts Fund cycles explored the themes of migration,criminalization, and the construct, concept & culture of Blackness.
How to Apply: Astraea invites proposals for the Global Arts Fund based on nominations received from grantee partners, activist advisors, allied organizations, staff and board. We are not currently accepting nominations for the Global Arts Fund.
Astraea is a public foundation that raises funds every year for our grantmaking activities. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide grants to all groups that meet our criteria. We make decisions based on our values and priorities, as well as an analysis of the funding landscape to determine where Astraea’s support can be most impactful.
