Application Deadline: Thursday, November 15, 2018
The IHC invites proposals from UCSB faculty members for funding through its Collaborative Arts Teaching Program (formerly known as Community-Engaged Participatory Pedagogy in the Arts Program). Awards of up to $4,000 will be made for visual and performing art projects housed within undergraduate or graduate courses at UCSB that will take place in the current or following academic year. Applicants should engage with a community partner in conceiving, designing, and executing a project that is significant to a particular community. Partners may include non-UCSB community groups in Isla Vista and in the Santa Barbara region. The program can be used either to seed projects for existing courses or as the basis for creating a new course with a community-engaged component; we welcome proposals that incorporate graduate student mentoring. Proposals for continuing projects that have already been funded through the program must indicate how the course and/or project is different from and builds on the prior iteration. Funding may be used for residencies with visiting artists with experience in community-engaged participatory work, for materials and equipment, transportation, and other costs associated with the project. Funds must be used within the current or subsequent academic year. Applications are due by November 15, 2018 at 5 pm.
