Access A.R.T./New York Microgrants

A.R.T./New York offers microgrants to all A.R.T./New York members (except Business Affiliates) who would like to hire professionals to increase the accessibility of a production or online performance/event, including but not limited to ASL interpreters, audio describers, consultants, and digital accessibility tools. These microgrants are intended to make it more financially feasible for companies to offer more accessible performances and to build the audiences for those performances. Applicants should already have begun conversations with the professional(s) they are planning to hire. Microgrant amounts are determined on a case-by-case basis to meet the needs of each applicant, but, typically, grants are given at a maximum of $1500 and at a one-to-one match with the applicant.

 


Intimacy Director Microgrants

Through its Body Autonomy program, A.R.T./New York offers microgrants to all A.R.T./New York members (except Business Affiliates) to subsidize the cost of bringing Intimacy Directors/Choreographers onto a production. In addition to making this process more financially feasible, these microgrants underscore how important an Intimacy Director/Choreographer is for a production that involves nudity and/or sexual contact or choreography—just like how valuable a fight choreographer is for scenes involving stunts and physical action. 

Applying for the microgrant requires providing a short narrative and a budget for approval. Microgrant amounts are determined on a case-by-case basis to meet the needs of each applicant, but, typically, grants are given at a maximum of $1500 and at a one-to-one match with the applicant.
