AWI Voices With Impact 2023 Info Session

Every year, Art With Impact provides 10 production grants for filmmakers to create five-minute films about mental health topics that deserve more discussion and visibility. This year-long project celebrates mental health stories told by filmmakers with unique perspectives and lived experience.

In 2022-23 Art With Impact will be providing ten $7,500 grants for projects that explore topics surrounding climate change and/or burnout.

In this 90-minute session, Art With Impact’s Executive Director Cary McQueen will guide you through the Request for Proposals, provide insights into what jurors will be looking for, and share successful proposals from past rounds of this project. There will also be time to answer your questions about the program and process.
