Cambridge Arts makes annual awards to support access to professional arts and culture events for Cambridge youth through Field Trip Grants and supports individual artists and organizations through Project Grants. Project Grants are awarded in two categories: Creating & Presenting and Education & Access.

Creating & Presenting Grants support the development and/or presentation of visual arts, dance, film/video, literature, music, theater, multidisciplinary and new media arts.

Education & Access Grants promote in-depth understanding of and participation in the arts. This category also supports projects that increase participation of populations with limited access to the arts.

Field Trip Grants are used to purchase tickets for Cambridge youth (pre-K though grade 12) to attend professional arts and cultural events in or outside of Cambridge.
