Queens Council on the Arts (QCA) is pleased to announce the launch of the Artist Commissioning Program (ACP) to support Queens artists to create new, original works to be interpreted for theatre, dance and music. This innovative program allows Queens community members to become panelists who will select four artists to each receive a $10,000 commission.


Artists may include playwrights, choreographers, and composers. If selected, you will receive a $10,000 commission to create a theater script, dance notation, or musical score. We will actively support artists who present a fresh perspective by creating work that tells untold stories, defies the cultural mainstream, or privileges underrepresented identities.
