Entry Fee (Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance): $25.00
2015 Current Round: Performing Arts and Media Arts
Deadline: Monday, January 5, 2015 at midnight EST
The Rubys were established in 2013 by GBCA with lead funding from the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation to provide project-based funding for individual artists. The vision of the program is to provide meaningful support to individual artists for the creation of innovative and bold projects that will have a significant impact for the artist and on the artistic community. The program is open to both emerging and established artists who are committed to their art forms.
The Rubys will have two funding rounds per year, with each round awarding grants in two of the four discipline areas. Applicants may request up to a maximum of $10,000. Artists in each discipline category will be selected for funding each year. Artists may submit only one application during each funding round.
