APPLY NOW. BAX The Parent/Artist space Grant Application Deadline: Friday, June 5 @ 5:00 PM
The Parent/Artist space grant is designed to address some of the needs of artists who are trying to meet the challenges of being an artist and a parent to preschool age children.
The 2015 Fall Parent/Artist Space Grant will be awarded to a total of two artists who are parents of preschool age (0-4) children, and are trying to meet the challenges of being an artist and a parent. One grant will be awarded to a choreographer and another to a Theater/Performance artist. In addition to a supportive environment to work in, BAX will provide 50 hours of free rehearsal space to be used September-December 2015, and a $300 childcare stipend.

Participants will be asked to work closely with BAX staff to document the effectiveness of the grant, keep a diary and provide feedback to the program.
As part of its Youth Education Programming, BAX offers a PlaySpace on Mondays and Fridays from 9:30 – 11:30am, offered free of charge to awarded artists. Awarded artists may take advantage of this program with your child or you may send your childcare provider.
