The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage is pleased to announce that the 2017 guidelines for Project grant applications are now available. The Center makes Project grants in two program areas: Exhibitions & Public Interpretation and Performance. Our program areas reflect the increasingly hybrid nature of contemporary practice and the fluid boundaries among and between disciplines in the presentation and interpretation of material and visual culture, and in performance.

For over a decade, Center grant making has supported outstanding work by the Philadelphia region's cultural organizations and artists, including artist-driven and community-based organizations, major civic institutions, and extraordinary artists and curators living and working in our area and around the globe.

In 2016, the Center awarded more than $10 million in grants to Philadelphia-area organizations and individual practitioners, encompassing 36 Project grants; 5 Advancement grants; and 12 Pew Fellowships for individual artists. View the full 2016 grantee list at pcah.us/2016grants.

We strongly encourage all potential applicants to review the application guidelines and then make an appointment with Center program staff by October 15, 2016 to discuss project ideas. To schedule an appointment please contact:
