MoCA Westport is pleased to introduce the Space Grant Partner Program.
Our beautiful new space at 19 Newtown Turnpike, Westport, CT is a destination dedicated to using the Arts to enrich our community. We thoughtfully design and curate experiences of all types, from Visual Arts to Classical Music, including performances, juried exhibitions, lectures, excursions and other educational opportunities.
Through our Space Grant Partner Program we offer the use of our space to other 501(c)(3) nonprofit and civic organizations in Fairfield County who make a positive impact on our community. Use of the space can include public gatherings, invitation-only social events, lectures, film screenings, small-scale performances, discussion groups, and meetings, among others. This Space Grant is not intended for art exhibitions. Gallery walls are not available to hang art or event materials. All event materials and signage must be free-standing. Restrictions on food and beverages apply due to the artwork on premises. See the Space Grant Policy for all requirements.
In the spirit of partnership, selected Space Grant Partner organizations will encourage staff and/or constituents to assist as volunteers for MoCA events like exhibition openings, performances and fundraisers; acknowledge the Partnership on its website and social media, along with cross-promotion of MoCA events to Partner constituents via printed materials, website, email and/or social media.
Space Grant Partner applicants must submit an application by September 1, 2019 with a proposal for single or multiple events to be held October 2019 – May 2020. Proposals will not be considered after September 1 until the application period re-opens in the spring of 2020 for events to be held September 2020 – May 2021.
