$10,000 Illuminations Grant for Black Trans Women Visual Artists Application Deadline is June 30, 2021

We’re posting this exciting announcement from Friend of TCNE, Mariette Pathy Allen. Mariette has been photographing our community for over 4 decades. You might know Mariette from her multiple appearances at First Event or her work on the groundbreaking Tapestry magazine.

This annual $10,000 grant, awarded to draw attention to an existing body of work, sheds light on the under-recognized contributions of Black trans women visual artists and provides critical support to their continuing work. Winning artists will receive additional professional development resources and further guidance to bolster their creative development in the field. The grant will provide a $1,250 award to four distinguished finalists.

Qualified artists must be self-identified Black trans women and trans femmes working in visual art and based in the United States. Applications are open until June 30, 2021. For questions, email Illuminations Grant Manager Ray Ferreira at rferreira@queer-art.org.
