Culture Guidelines

The Foundation is excited to have a new Culture program director, Mia Khimm. In collaboration with a range of stakeholders, Mia is developing a new strategy for the program, which we expect to unveil in the summer of 2021. Until further notice, except for the Joyce Awards, the program is focused on supporting active grantees through the COVID-19 crisis and therefore not inviting applications from new grantees.

As of March 2020 and until further notice, the Culture program (not including Joyce Awards) is focused on supporting active grantees through the COVID-19 crisis and therefore not inviting applications from new grantees. However, the Culture Program is accepting Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) for the 2022 Joyce Awards.
