The Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) Deaf Arts Grant is a new program that provides financial support for emerging and established artists to further advance their careers.
Deaf Spotlight’s mission is to inspire and showcase Deaf Culture and American Sign Language through the arts. The Deaf Arts Grant will make a crucial difference for BIPOC Deaf, DeafBlind, DeafDisabled and Hard of Hearing artists to thrive in the challenging arts field.
The number of grants given out each year is dependent on funding available. In 2021, Deaf Spotlight will award (4) recipients $1,000.00 each. At least one recipient will reside in the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, or Idaho) and at least one recipient will be a National selection outside of the Pacific Northwest region.
