What We Do

We believe art and culture are essentials, not luxuries. We know artists significantly shape the social, economic, and environmental facets of our city. They propose new ways of responding to the collective challenges we face, distill complex concepts into emotionally resonant formats, and help us envision more just and equitable futures. Their work deserves critical and financial support.

Our cornerstone programs are designed to interlock and welcome multi-year engagement with Omaha-area artists and organizers.

  • Artist Grants provide seed funding for projects and direct support to artists working to sustain their practices.
  • Alternate Currents holds space for artists to reexamine and refine their practices through creative research, collaboration, and critical discussion.
  • Generator Grants offer time, money, and physical space for projects to manifest in their fullness, reach new audiences, and precipitate artist-led change. 
Interesting Info
  • Since 2018, we've provided direct financial support to hundreds of Omaha-area artists.
  • We operate under a shared leadership model that centers equity, accountability, and transparency.
  • Our programs have incubated local, national, and international artist-led initiatives that put Omaha on the map.
