As an investor and convener, CJP is committed to supporting a rich and vibrant Jewish arts and culture community within Greater Boston. We support Jewish artists and arts organizations through fellowships, grants, and partnerships, and by fostering engagement with this work throughout our community.
Arts and culture can powerfully connect us to Jewishness and to one another; bring us into deep and challenging conversations; and illuminate and preserve Jewish experience and memory. Through this work, we will celebrate, heal, and engage with the world.
We are excited to explore and appreciate the beauty of Jewish arts and culture, together.
CJP is continuing to invest in our local artists- we are pleased to have recently chosen our 4th and newest cohort. Check back here after the new year for more information about the artists!
Created in 2020, the grant pool supports artistic endeavors that:
The 2023-2024 Grant Fund is now closed. The 2024-2025 Art and Culture Community Impact Grant Fund will open around August 1st, 2024. Check back here for more information this Spring. If you are interested in receiving an email when the grant fund opens, please email Carissa at email@example.com.
CJP has invested in innovative approaches to support our community’s mental health. Using techniques based in art therapy, our Create and Connect Initiative used art therapists as consultants to work with community organizations in support of staff and families. We know art-based opportunities open new doors for healing, rejuvenation, and introspection, and were proud to offer these resources to support our community. Please enjoy this video highlighting some of the work.
