The Anonymous Was A Woman Environmental Art Grants (AWAW EAG) program, administered by NYFA, will distribute a total of $250,000 in funding (up to $20,000 per project) 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.
