An initiative of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Indianapolis.
GUIDELINES & PROCEDURES
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.

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.
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.
