A Letter of Interest is now available on the William Penn Foundation’s website for eligible organizations to apply to the Foundation for funding support in 2018. Letters of Interest are due to the Foundation by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 1, 2017.

The New Audiences/New Places grantmaking program funds artistic projects that engage new audiences through the use of public, civic, and community spaces as platforms for cultural performances and public art, supporting work that enriches community life and fosters creative expression throughout the city.

The principal aim of the New Audiences/New Places effort is to increase resident and visitor engagement with dynamic, high-quality public art by funding organizations to create art in places outside of their traditional venues and that reaches new audiences.

The Foundation supports a diverse range of high quality art projects in a wide range of public, civic, and community spaces with the overarching expectation that the works will be highly available to the public.

Please visit this section of their website to determine if your project is eligible and to access the online Letter of Interest form.
