Funded by Miami-Dade County and in partnership with FUNDarte, the Artist Access Grant Program is designed to assist practicing, professional artists in any medium or discipline residing in Miami-Dade County pursue opportunities that will advance their practice and careers in demonstrable ways. 

Eligible opportunities include artistic professional development and skill-building opportunities such as specialized workshops, artist residencies, technique classes with master artists, conferences, teaching artist training, arts leadership training and other non-credit artistic learning opportunities (in person or virtual). Applicants must demonstrate how the potential, timeliness, and impact of the opportunities will forward the artist’s career. 

Project-oriented opportunities (such as exhibits or performances that consist of presenting work to the public), professional certification, certificate, degree-seeking opportunities, opportunities presented by students (high school, undergraduate, graduate and any student enrolled in a degree program at the time of application) and touring engagements are not eligible for funding consideration. Costs associated with the presentation of exhibits or performances (such as installation expenses, supplies and materials and other project-related expenses) are not eligible.

Artist Access Program funding support does not assume direct or indirect responsibility for any consequences associated with an applicant’s decision to travel.
