The Joyce Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2023 Joyce Awards, the foundation’s signature program supporting the creation of high-impact, community-centered works by artists of color in collaboration with organizations located in Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis-St. Paul.
The 2023 Joyce Awards will be awarded to six artists across disciplines, in partnership with arts and community organizations in one of the above Great Lakes cities. Open to artists based anywhere in the world, each $75,000 grant enables the creation and presentation of a new work that engages deeply with and provides long-term benefits to local communities. $25,000 of each grant is awarded directly to the commissioned artist.
The Joyce Awards have amplified the careers of luminary artists working across disciplines, including Kyle Abraham, Terence Blanchard, Sanford Biggers, Camille A. Brown, Nick Cave, Theaster Gates, Seitu Jones, Bill T. Jones, Lynn Nottage, Julie Mehretu, and Nari Ward. 2022 Awardees are playwright Nancy García Loza with the National Museum of Mexican Art; musician and educator Nabil Ince with the Harrison Center; dancer and choreographer Michael Manson with Living Arts; visual and social practice artist Aram Han Sifuentes with the HANA Center; and transdisciplinary artist Pramila Vasudevan with Public Art Saint Paul.
The Joyce Awards support projects that allow organizations to explore innovative new commissions, catalyze sustained engagement with communities, and advance the evolution of each winning artist’s practice. To date, the Foundation has awarded more than $4 million to the development of over 80 new works of visual, performing, and multidisciplinary art.
Applications must be submitted by the commissioning organization (with 501(c)3 status or with a fiscal sponsor).
The deadline for pre-registration is September 7, 2022, with Letters of Inquiry due on September 12, 2022 at 11:59pm CDT.
