The Rockefeller Foundation Cultural Innovation Fund (CIF) gave a grant of up to $250,000 to 16 organisations to develop a project that enriches neighborhoods and builds a better future through art and design in New York City.
Grants for projects typically fall into one or more of the following categories:
- Creative engagement with the issues shaping New York City’s future cultural and civic agenda.
- Programming and premieres of new artistic work that demonstrate fresh perspectives and can activate new directions in the visual, performing and media arts.
- New partnerships among cultural organizations, community-based institutions, universities and the private sector.
- Interventions designed to confront longstanding bottlenecks and limitations on the expansion of cultural vitality with fresh approaches and solutions
