Each of New York Foundation for the Arts’ programs and services will be covered with an emphasis on NYFA Source, Fiscal Sponsorship, and the Immigrant Artists Project.
NYFA Source: NYFA Source is the most extensive national online directory of awards, services, and programs for artists.
Fiscal Sponsorship: Fiscal Sponsorship is a critical way for individual artists, artists’ collaborative projects, and emerging arts organizations in all disciplines to apply for funding usually available only to organizations with 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. The right fiscal sponsor will not only allow you to manage your project efficiently, but can actually help artists to raise more money and realize their artistic visions more fully.
Immigrant Artists Project: Through the Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program, the bi-monthly IAP Newsletter, and other programming, the Immigrant Artist Project seeks to expand the constituency it serves by nurturing and fostering a community of empowered artists with diverse educational, cultural, and creative backgrounds.
The New York Foundation for the Arts‘ mission is to empower artists at critical stages in their creative lives.
LegalArt has dedicated itself to providing artists with affordable legal services, grants and educational opportunities. By empowering artists with access to legal and professional support, resources and information, LegalArt creates opportunities and protections for Miami’s art community; fostering a generation armed with the skills to legally protect their creations. All LegalArt programming helps artists by creating a community both dedicated to and invested in their success.
Locust Projects is an alternative exhibition space dedicated to providing contemporary visual artists the freedom to experiment with new ideas and methods without the pressure of gallery sales or limitations of conventional exhibition spaces. Locust Projects is committed to offering an approachable and inviting venue for the Miami and International art community to experience artwork and meet the artists.
