In the meantime, here are the 2021 call for proposals.

 

2021 CALLS FOR PROPOSALS

 

CAHA will accept grant applications outside of these areas but projects that fall within these grant lines will be given preference.

  1. Arts & Humanities in Times of Crisis – Literature and the arts have always held a prominent place in helping to define who we are as human beings and in enriching our lives. This is all the more apparent during moments of crisis, like the current COVID-19 pandemic. CAHA is soliciting projects from individuals and groups that considers the role and value of their particular practice during times of crisis. Interpretations of the role the arts and humanities play in society during challenging times.

  2. Keeping your distance – Exhibitions, showcases, concerts, recitals, book readings and poetry slams all require an audience. How do artists present our work to the community while keeping our distance? CAHA is soliciting projects from individuals and groups who utilize technology such as Internet streaming, podcasts, broadcast mediums, and other vehicles to bring the product of their particular practice to the community while keeping their distance.

  3. Sustaining the Arts & Humanities – With resources stretched to the limit, how can artists make their practice more sustainable? CAHA is soliciting projects that make use of recycled/reused materials and/or natural resources found in Guam. How can artists participate in a circular economy? This grant line also is open to projects that use or discuss the theme of “Sustainability” in their artform.

  4. Arts & Humanities, Identity and Social Justice – In "The Art of Social Justice," Maria X. Martinez states: “Artists not only document social change; they promote, inform and shape it. Whether through music , plays, graphics, paintings, songs, films, media, architecture, textiles, jewelry, photography, poetry, sculpture, pottery, landscapes, written word, spoken word, or dance, art is powerful. . . Art is the intellectual underpinnings of social change; nowhere is there more potential and more need for art than here and now.” Artists and their art can promote social justice, mitigate disparities, bring people together, and build healthy neighborhoods. CAHA is seeking projects that demonstrate this.
