City Artist Corps Grants Webinar

Monday, June 28, 2021
2 – 3PM

Firelight Media & Black Public Media present a webinar for BIPOC NYC-based filmmakers about applying for City Artist Corps Grants.

Firelight Media and Black Public Media (BPM) along with other NYC arts organizations are partnering with the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA), with support from the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) as well as Queens Theatre (QT) on the City Artist Corps Grants program.

City Artist Corps Grants will distribute one-time $5,000 grants to more than 3,000 working NYC artists – including filmmakers – who will engage the public with arts activities across New York City’s five boroughs beginning this July.

Firelight Media and BPM recognize the damaging impact COVID-19 has had on the city’s BIPOC communities and artists. We’re making sure BIPOC artists know about this opportunity to apply for and use the City Artist Corps Grant resources to share their work.

This webinar will include a brief overview of the City Artist Corps Grants program, specific information for filmmakers who seek to apply for the grant, and a live Q&A. Hosted by Michon Boston, project manager, with introductory remarks by Marcia Smith, president of Firelight Media.
