Pérez CreARTE Grants Program

The Jorge M. Pérez Family Foundation at The Miami Foundation aims to develop South Florida as a world-class urban center. A thriving arts community makes Greater Miami a vibrant, connected and culturally engaging place to live.

 

In 2019, from more than 200 applicants, the Pérez CreARTE Grants Program chose to invest $2 million into 23 Miami-Dade organizations in three focus areas: expanding access to the arts, providing spaces for creation and supporting top talent through residencies and fellowships. Learn more about this program.

 

CreARTE will not be open for submissions in 2020 as many of the 2019 investments were made as multi-year commitments.  The team will spend 2020 building the capacity of the current grantees and refining the program to be re-launched in 2021. The Foundation is not accepting unsolicited proposals at this point in time.

 

For questions about this grant program, contact Lindsey Linzer, senior director of programs and grants administration.
