Longhouse COVID-19 Grant / Calls & Submissions

May 7, 2020

Organization Name: Longhouse Education and Cultural Center

Organization Location: Olympia, WA

Type: Calls & Submissions | COVID-19 | Funding

Fee: Free


As we continue our mission to support Indigenous arts and cultures, the Longhouse announces two new opportunities. (Please note that you can only apply for one of these opportunities.)

Option 1:

We are offering a competitive round of mini-grants for artists who have received Native Creative Development Program grants in the past. We invite all past and present Native Creative grantees to apply for up to $1000 in support. We will place a special emphasis on artists who rely on their art as the primary source of income, and who may not have the opportunity to apply for support elsewhere. There are never enough resources to go around, so we hope that our streamlined application process and criteria will help address artists’ needs in a way that is quick and responsive. (Click for Application: Longhouse Covid-19 Response Grant.)

Option 2:

Please Note: This call has been expanded to allow nationwide submissions.

We are seeking to commission instructional videos in Indigenous cultural arts for distribution via the Longhouse’s YouTube channel. Artists/instructors will receive up to $1000, depending upon the complexity of the art form and length of the video. Applicants will submit a proposal and describe their level of experience with video creation. You do not need to be a previous Longhouse grantee to be eligible to apply for this opportunity.

Proposals are due May 7, 2020.

Review will occur on May 15th and artists will be notified shortly thereafter.
