APAP’s grant programs provide support that underwrites individual professional development and fuels artistic initiatives in our local communities. Not only do the grants help artists, agents, managers, presenters and promoters learn from each other and from the audiences they serve, but APAP shares the lessons from grantee projects through toolkits like the Creative Campus Toolkit and databases like the Digital Diaries, broadening the knowledge of the field.
Here members can learn from each other and from the audiences they serve how to best curate and present arts programs that address the unique needs of communities.
The Building Bridges grant program works to expand awareness, knowledge and understanding of Muslim societies. Here you will find more information on current and past projects. This grant cycle is currently closed.
Cultural Exchange Fund
The Cultural Exchange Fund (CEF) is a travel stipend that helps U.S.-based APAP members build partnerships outside of the U.S. Here you will find first-hand accounts of member’s experiences and come away with travel ideas of your own.
