Event | Meet the Funder: New York State Council on the Arts

Are you an arts organization planning to apply to NYSCA’s Special Arts Services funding program? Here is an opportunity to learn more and ask questions about the application process.

New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) is a leading source of funding for New York-based arts organizations and individuals. Learn how to navigate the application process for the Special Arts Services (SAS) Program at The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) on Thursday, February 28. Arian Blanco, NYSCA Program Director, will lead the information session and answer your questions after a short presentation. Blanco will be joined by Program Officer Kavie Barnes.

Special Arts Services (SAS) supports programs that engage the arts to address the changing needs of New York’s most vulnerable populations, including people in geographically-remote areas with limited cultural offerings; disabled communities; the aging; impoverished and homeless populations; and court, jail, and prison-involved juveniles and adults.

SAS funding supports both established and emerging organizations. The program encourages collaborations and innovative projects, either multi-disciplinary or focused on a specific discipline of the performing arts, visual arts, or media. SAS also supports professional arts training, promoting advanced study as well as the entry of underserved artists pursuing arts careers. All applicants must have proof of New York State residency.
