We believe in the power of face-to-face meetings to build community and strengthen relationships among artists

Each year we hold an international artist retreat in upstate New York, bringing together participants from the United States, Israel, South America, and Europe. Using adapted programming, we also hold local trainings throughout the world, creating deep collaborations with partner organizations, sharing knowledge, and building more connected artist communities.

Asylum Arts Small Grants Program

We support Asylum Arts network artists in creative projects that explore Jewish and Israeli ideas, themes, history, and identity. We hope audiences will engage with their work and ultimately start global conversations. Our grants support artistic careers, ensure diverse activity across geography, and strengthen the network of Asylum Arts participants. We only give grants to artists who have previously attended one of our retreats.

We have given out grants to 66 artists in our two rounds of grants. Supported projects approach Jewish and Israeli culture from a variety of perspectives. The projects span diverse disciplines, geographical contexts and thematic elements. Grants of up to $3,000 were given in the following categories: Collaboration with Asylum Arts Network Participants, Creation and Presentation of New Work, and Research and Travel.

Our grants process is currently open for Asylum Arts Alumni only. Grant applications are due by September 30, 2016. For questions please email info@asylum-arts.org
