NEA an Advocate for the Arts
The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) was established in 1965 as a U.S. government agency, and brings hope and creativity to the heart of artists and organizations across the nation. Thanks to the support of the NEA, communities have access to valuable and critical grants that make so many great projects possible.
To date, the NEA has awarded more than 140,000 grants in support of programs and organizations that shape our culture, one of these organizations being NALIP. Thanks to our supporters we continue being the premiere Latino media organization, giving Latino/a writers, producers, directors and performers the opportunity to advance their projects and careers. The NEA have been a part of the Sundance Film Festival, PBS's Great Performances series and the American Film Festival among many others.
Agencies such as the NEA give creators a voice, and provide the necessary funding to create programs, projects and opportunities in the arts. They give different organizations, fellowships and non-profits, such as NALIP the chance to advocate and provide for content creators, by putting together programs like the Latino Lens Incubators. Those who aren’t familiar with the NEA, chances are they’ve read a book, seen a movie, enjoyed the artwork that exists in part because of the NEA. It has quietly been a backbone for many establishments in the arts, an important part of society and a driver of culture.
The NEA provides communities with history, culture, art and a unique identity. Thank you, National Endowment of the Arts for strengthening our communities and providing diverse opportunities.
