Program Overview

 A special Capacity-Building Program for Fall River artists pairs an unrestricted micro-grant of $3,000 with professional development tools for artists to design and build their creative future. Made possible through the collaboration of Fall River Arts & Culture Coalition (FRACC) and Assets for Artists (A4A)

Program Details

The Capacity-Building Program delivers personalized, artist-centric professional development, empowering artists to enhance their creative practices, pursue purpose-driven careers, forge supportive networks, and access resources for sustainable, self-determined success.

The Capacity-Building program welcomes artists and creatives from all disciplines.

Our definition of "artist" is broad, encompassing visual artists, writers, musicians, dancers, theater artists, craftspeople, jewelers, fashion designers, puppeteers, fiber artists, drag performers, photographers, filmmakers, woodworkers, traditional artisans, social practitioners, and more!

While we embrace artists at any career stage, the majority we've supported identify as emerging or midcareer. Our community includes self-taught individuals alongside those with MFAs, artists new to their craft, and those with decades of experience. Many of our participants have never previously received a grant, and we particularly encourage artists from under-resourced communities and backgrounds to apply.

The Capacity-Building Program is ideally suited for creatives eager to embrace A4A's program offerings, ready to fortify their practice for long-term sustainability, and seeking to broaden and deepen their connections within a vibrant network of creative peers.
