Later this summer, the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) will be hosting info sessions to provide an introduction to City cultural funding for arts and cultural nonprofits that may not know about the Cultural Development Fund or the regrant programs administered by the local arts councils. These info sessions are not intended for organizations currently funded by DCA, but instead for arts groups that are unfamiliar with our process and would like to know more.

If you are an arts or cultural nonprofit organization, or an unincorporated arts group on your way to incorporation, join the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) for an info session about applying for and securing City funding for arts and cultural activities.

At each session, DCA will offer an overview of the Cultural Development Fund, which is the city’s open, competitive funding process for arts and cultural organizations throughout the five boroughs. In addition, representatives from the five Local Arts Councils will discuss their funding opportunities and array of services for smaller organizations and unincorporated collectives at the sessions noted below.

Tuesday, July 28 at 10am (Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island)       

Includes representatives from:

Tuesday, August 4 at 12pm  (Brooklyn and Queens)

Arts organization representatives are welcome to attend either session, though borough-specific representatives will only be presenting at the sessions identified above. Both sessions will take place at DCA’s offices at 31 Chambers Street, Room 209, in Manhattan. The sessions will be presented in English, but there will be staff members available to take questions in Spanish and Mandarin. Click here to RSVP.
