The Joyce Awards

Supporting artists of color to create new work and engage with the community.

 

Joyce Awards

The Joyce Awards, the only program supporting artists of color in major Great Lakes cities, aims to strengthen cross-cultural understanding by bringing diverse audiences together. The Chicago-based Foundation has awarded more than $2.4 million to commission 46 new works since the program started in 2003.
Four collaborations between artists of color and leading arts and cultural organizations in the Great Lakes region have received 2015 Joyce Awards to present new works designed to engage, communicate and build communities. The cash awards of $50,000 each will go to partnerships in Detroit, Chicago and the Twin Cities.
