Parent Artist Space Grants
Parent Artist Space Grant
This grant is designed to address some of the needs of artists who are also parents. BAX is familiar with the joys and the difficulties of raising a family while creating and producing art, performance, and creative work in New York City. BAX provides an artist stipend, child care stipend, and free rehearsal space. Additionally, Parent Artists’ children are eligible for free tuition for any youth class in dance, theater, and tumbling during their residency.
The Parent Artist Space Grant is funded by the Sustainable Arts Foundation.
“I love that BAX champions parent artists. It celebrates rigor and the values of being ‘in process’ with a cohort in which group interactions are a built-in feature. There is also a hybridity to the ways the artists I met were working. Self-reflection but also a tributary into the broader context of being in society.” – 2023 Parent Artist Space Grantee
