The Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) is proud to have joined 60+ arts organizations and 130 individuals in raising $100,000 to support 200 artists and cultural workers.
The money will include $500 micro-grants to assist those who are unemployed as a result of the city’s Covid-19 lockdown.
Support is for individual artists and cultural workers, which are defined as those who work in a variety of roles, (stagehands, arts administrators, curators, etc.) at arts organizations and cultural institutions.
Applications for these grants will open on Friday, February 26, 2021, at 9:00 AM through March 5th at 9:00 PM. All information and the application, (in English and Spanish) can be found at www.culturalsolidarityfund.org. Phone support will be available to assist applicants.
Artists have always been central to the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) programs be they education, performance, or exhibitions.
CCCADI has identified artists and cultural workers as a priority group impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic in need of assistance and early in the pandemic launched a Cultural Response + Community Resources Portal which can be found at www.cccadi.org, and includes important information for our community, Emergency Resources List for Artists, uplifting content straight from our archives, free exhibition education guides for parents and more.
Located in East Harlem, the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) is a nonprofit arts, culture, education, and media organization that advances cultural equity, racial and social justice for African Diaspora communities.
Each of CCCADI’s programs asserts the centrality and relevance of African, African American, Afro-Caribbean, and Afro-Latino culture.
Weaving together four broad categories: Learning, Expressions, Spirituality and Exchange, CCCADI carries out its mission through advocacy, public art exhibitions, public performances, educational programs, internships, fellowships, workshops, conferences, international exchange and collaborative partnerships.
This past Juneteenth, 2020, CCCADI launched the #ArtsGoBlack campaign to challenge the arts and culture field to actively address racial inequality. For more information, please visit: https://artsgo.black/
