Multicultural Funds

Guest Artist Funds

Multicultural Guest Artist funds are a supplemental resource for bringing distinguished multicultural artists to perform at Calvin College. Such performers provide significant exposure to varying forms of art for the faculty, students, and community of Calvin College.

If an academic department would like to bring a particular multicultural artist to Calvin's campus and needs additional funds, these funds may supplement department resources. The maximum amount of funds awarded any department in a given year is $500.


All academic departments on campus are eligible for Multicultural Guest Artist funding. Any department applying for Multicultural Guest Artist funds is required to have "departmental sponsorship" in promoting student attendance at each lecture including efforts to build an audience of people of color. Other campus organizations, aside from academic departments, may invite and host Multicultural Guest Artists, but only with an academic department acting on the group's behalf.
