ArtLift Microgrant Program

The ArtLift Microgrant Program is an ongoing special program launched in 2021. It provides funding for temporary projects by local artists and creatives with the goal of helping the community recover emotionally and economically from the pandemic through the arts and creative outlets. Through funding art projects and experiences in our commercial corridors and our neighborhoods, ArtLift help foster safe and creative ways to remain engaged in the arts, reconnect with each other, and recover together as a cohesive community. ArtLift is being presented in support of the city-wide Uplift Local efforts already underway with the purpose of connecting the community. Taking advantage of unique locations across Palo Alto, artists perform, create or place temporary artworks focused on play, community connectedness and shared experiences, resiliency, empathy, vibrancy, and recovery.
