We are thrilled to announce that Kultura is the recipient of a 2022 Emerging Network Grant from CANVAS.
Launched in 2019, CANVAS grew out of a series of conversations among JFN members following the demise of the Foundation for Jewish Culture. CANVAS, which is incubated at Jewish Funders Network (JFN), has focused much of its philanthropic investments on networks because of their ability to develop, nurture, and connect individual creatives and institutions in the field of Jewish arts and culture.
“This growing network of arts and culture networks is the foundation of the ecosystem,” says Lou Cove, CANVAS Founder. “It is a woefully underserved community that is, nonetheless, driving the 21st-century Jewish cultural renaissance. We are honored to support them and to champion them.”
CANVAS now includes seven major foundations and is developing an additional pooled fund for individual and smaller donors. CANVAS grantees must prioritize artistic excellence worthy of (inter)national recognition and foster meaningful engagement with Jewish and secular communities.
