Creation of New Work


Initiated in 2003, the Foundation offers a special grant program designed to:

  • Foster creativity in Greater Hartford by supporting local artists in the creation of new work
  • Foster collaborations between artists and arts organizations that benefit the artist, the organization and the community
  • Further the Foundation’s mission to support and encourage excellence in the arts in Hartford and the immediately surrounding community

We hope this special program will provide greater support for artists in the Greater Hartford community and that the community as a whole will benefit from the resulting new work.

Grants for the Creation of New Work program will now be considered under the Excellence in the Arts program throughout the year.
