PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] - The Brown Arts Initiative (BAI) has awarded 16 grants of $300 each to student and community artists to help create protest work in response to the current systemic racial injustice protests.
As part of its response to systemic racial injustice, the BAI started a fund to immediately support and sustain a creative response of public art in our streets and in our social spaces. These microgrants are for protest art of any kind and were open to Rhode Island residents, current Brown University students, staff, and faculty, as well as Brown University alumni.
