We are excited to announce that applications for our 2018-2019 WORD: Bruce Geller Memorial Prize and Reciprocity: Los Angeles Jewish Artist Retreat are now OPEN!
We look forward to welcome new artists to our ever-growing community, and learn more about the exciting work that can only happen in Los Angeles.
WORD supports projects with broadly defined but significant Jewish themes, ideas, ideals or elements, in which the written word or text also plays a role. Grants of up to $2,000 will be given for the creation and/or presentation of new work. Applications due January 4, 2019.
Reciprocity aims to empower artists to explore collaboration and innovative ways in order to build an integrated artist community and facilitate a nuanced conversation about Los Angeles’ unique culture and identity. It is an intensive four day artists retreat intended to foster an artist community founded on reciprocity, collaboration and inclusivity to build the Los Angeles Jewish cultural landscape. This program is produced in collaboration with Asylum Arts.
