Dreamstarter® Creative Grant

How It Works:

Running Strong is granting up to $25,000 each year to Native artisans who celebrate their Indigenous identity through their artwork. We will select up to 10 Native artists (graphic designers, beadworkers, seamstresses, painters, photographers, illustrators, potters, and more) to receive up to $2,500 each to support their work. 

Grant funds may be used for:

Supplies, materials, and equipment

Workshops and seminars

Stipends for culture bearers

Professional development

Weight will be given to unique, self-driven projects over travel to or attendance of projects sponsored by other organizations. Grant may be disbursed to either individual applicant or to partnering nonprofit organization.

How To Apply:
