Starting July 5, 2022, we are accepting applications for the 2023 Joyce Awards. The Joyce Awards is the only regional program dedicated to supporting artists of color in major Great Lakes cities. Each award of $75,000 supports an artist and commissioning organization in the creation and production of a new work that engages communities in Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, and/or Minneapolis-St. Paul.
Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) for the next Joyce Awards will be accepted until September 12, 2021 at 11:59pm CDT, with awardees notified by May 2023. Registration of new organizational applicants is due one week prior, by September 7, 2022.
Interested in applying? Register for our Joyce Awards Information Session on Wednesday Tuesday, August 2, 12:00-1:00 p.m. CDT to learn more about the awards program and application process.
For questions about the awards program, please contact us at [email protected].
Help us spread the word about the Joyce Awards, and the webinar, to artists of color, arts organizations and community-based organizations in your networks!
