The Ink People Center for the Arts, Del Norte Association for Cultural Awareness and the Trinity County Arts Council are pleased to present FAR (Funds for Artists’ Resilience), a new initiative made possible by a grant from the COVID-19 Regional Response Fund of the Humboldt Area Foundation and Wild Rivers Community Foundation. FAR is providing artist selection and project management services for a novel project that will fund the creation of public artworks in Humboldt, Del Norte, and Trinity counties on themes of equity and resilience.

Proposed artworks and events must be accessible to the public, provide opportunities for engagement with members of the community, and/or be a bridge for uniting diverse populations. Possible approaches include poetry, music, performance, painting, audiovisual production, and community engagement / social praxis. All media are eligible.

Awards will be made in two categories:

*Category 1: (Individual) This category is for solo applicants. Maximum funds per project: $1,000.

*Category 2: (Collaboration) This category is for teams. Proposals in this category should provide an opportunity for community members’ direct involvement and collaboration as part of the creative process. Maximum funding amount: $5,000.  

The submission deadline is 11:59 p.m. Friday, Oct. 16. Prospective applicants should register at and review the complete request for proposals posted there.
