Stipends Available for Educational Content Creators

To support underrepresented Teaching Artists in our region during the COVID-19 crisis, the newly formed Creative Learning Network, led by Allegheny Partners for Out-of-School Time (APOST), Arts Ed Collaborative (AEC), and the Legacy Arts Project (LAP), has created Creative Learning Rapid Response. Creative Learning Rapid Response is an initiative where teaching artists can create #ArtsLearningatHome content and receive stipends for their work.

Be sure to check out our #ArtsLearningAtHome page for a compendium of the resources created so far!

Virtual Workshop: $350 stipend

Share a one-time activity for virtual learning, such as:

  • Video – recorded or live streamed

  • Written – PDF, blog post, etc.

Virtual Residency: $550 stipend

Include a minimum of 2 enhancements below to your ongoing #ArtsLearningAtHome lesson or activity:

  • Series Format – Create a collection or series with a minimum of 3 parts.

  • Content & Community Connections– your activity connects to other content (is multidisciplinary, STEAM, Arts Integration, Arts Activism)

  • Student Learning Objectives: Map objectives that can be adapted for the classroom

  • Other: Add innovation beyond what’s listed above (please explain how)

All #ArtsLearningatHome ideas are welcome!

Even if you have already created or shared content, we want to support your work. Need technical help? No problem! Let us know in your application.

While this is a time of great distress for all, it is our intention to grant the majority of funds to teaching artists who identify as part of historically underrepresented communities that have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID crisis. This includes:

  • BIPOC – Black, Indigenous, Teaching Artists of Color
  • LGBTQIA+ Teaching Artists
  • Early Career & Elder Teaching Artists
  • Teaching Artists living with Disabilities

Please see our FAQ for additional details, timeline, review process, and eligibility requirements before applying. A PDF copy of the application is available for advance review.


Call for Technical Support:

In addition, we seek Teaching Artists with expertise in technical support and assistance including (but not limited to): filming and recording, graphic design, general technology knowledge to assist their peers in submitting and preparing virtual content for this initiative, as well as to document stories of teaching artists in our community. This is a separate call.

Due to the amount of anticipated responses to the Creative Learning Rapid Response #ArtsLearningatHome initiative, and our desire to support as many individuals as possible, teaching artists are unable to apply for both.
