Artist Grant Program - Faith, Justice & the Arts



Sponsored by Faith, Justice & the Arts
An initiative of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Indianapolis.


Spring Grant Term applications received March 1 – April 30, 2020
Note: Selected grant project must be completed by December 2020.

In support of the Faith, Justice & the Arts (FJA) mission, the committee created an Artist Grant Program. Artists are expected to create a work which will impact both St. Paul’s parishioners and the Indianapolis community at large; the artist is also expected to take part in at least one educational forum at St. Paul’s to introduce the work. Grant applications will be evaluated based on the proposal’s relationship to the intersection of faith, and the feasibility of the proposed project, including timeline, budget and scope of activities. The work can be created through music, dance, theater, literature, visual arts and/or other media.

About St. Paul’s
St. Paul’s initiative for Faith, Justice & the Arts (FJA) was created to fulfill the promise of the Baptismal Covenant to strive for justice and peace among all people and to respect the dignity of every human being. To achieve this, they will use the arts to create community-wide experiences and conversations that raise awareness about issues of injustice and lead to faithful and transformative engagement in the community.

Their Mission
The Faith, Justice & the Arts committee uses diverse artistic collaborations to awaken inspire and empower communities to strive for justice and peace among all peoples.

FAITH: Building trust to dismantle the systems that divide us.
JUSTICE: Cultivating reconciliation that forms healed communities.
ARTS: Creating experiences that transform each of us.

General Submission Criteria
Artists who receive an Artist Grant from FJA are expected to create a work which will impact both the community of St. Paul’s Indy and the Indianapolis community at large within the time frame of the grant. Recipients are also expected to take part in at least one St. Paul’s educational forum to introduce their work.

The work can be created through music, dance, theater, literature, visual arts, and/or other media. Funds can be used for materials, instruction, workshops, studio or rehearsal space, installation, and artist support. Artists can be at any point in their careers. Consideration may also be given to groups such as student groups, support groups, patient groups, to create group projects.

The grant recipient will be required to submit an IRS W-9 form so that an IRS 1099 income statement can be issued by St. Paul’s for the artist’s tax records. All taxes and reporting of taxes will be the responsibility of the grant recipient.

Grant Funding
