Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories female artists for environmentally-focused art projects. Funding is intended for thought-provoking projects that benefit and engage the public. Applications are encouraged from artists of color, artists with disabilities, artists living outside of the East and West coasts, and LGBTQ+ artists.

The Anonymous Was A Woman Environmental Art Grants (AWAW EAG) program, administered by NYFA, will distribute funding to support environmental art projects led by women-identifying artists in the United States and U.S. Territories. The AWAW EAG will support environmental art projects that inspire thought, action, and ethical engagement. Projects should not only point at problems, but aim to engage an environmental issue at some scale. Proposals should illustrate thorough consideration of a project’s ecological and social ethics. Projects that explore interdependence, relationships, and systems through Indigenous and ancestral practices are encouraged to apply.

The intended impact of the project is an important factor in the selection process. Environmental art projects that qualify for this program may focus on the following themes, but are not limited to:

  • Regeneration
  • Eco-social engagement
  • Decarbonization as decolonization
  • Ecofeminism
  • Climate change/climate collapse
  • Systems-restoration
  • Interspecies relationships
  • Natural or built systems
  • Recycling and repurposing
  • Clean energy production
  • Bioplastics

Selected projects must benefit the public in some way, and are required to have a public engagement component by June 30, 2023. The public engagement component must be free to attend, open to the general public, and must add value to the public sphere rather than solely benefiting the artist’s private gain. Online events are acceptable as long as they are attended by a live audience.
