We are excited to announce the open call for the 2022 WORD GRANT: Bruce Geller Memorial Prize is now OPEN!⁣

Over the past few years we have had both the opportunity of bridging geographical and social differences, and the challenge of finding tolerance towards singular and non-conforming voices and identities.

This year’s theme is RESILIENCE and AJU’s Institute of Jewish Creativity (IJC) is pleased to support projects that approach Jewish culture from a variety of perspectives and disciplines.

We look forward to welcoming new artists to our ever-growing community, and learn more about the exciting work created in different visual, performative and textual media.

WORD supports NEW projects by creators based in Los Angeles County with broadly defined but significant Jewish themes, ideas, ideals or elements, in which the written word or text also plays a role. Grants in the range of $500-$2,000 will be given for the creation and/or presentation of new work.⁣ Please note, the grant cannot be given to past recipients.

Applications deadline is: June 10th, 2022.
