Just Buffalo invites individual artists, collectives, nonprofit and community organizations to apply

Just Buffalo Literary Center’s 2024 Civil Writes Project application is open to individual artists, nonprofits and community organizations of all sizes for program support up to $2,500. The deadline to apply is Dec. 20.

Just Buffalo Literary Center’s Civil Writes Project is a large-scale community engagement project that began in 2017 with a series of interconnected literary arts programs culminating in Toni Morrison’s appearance at Just Buffalo’s BABEL series exactly 50 years to the day after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic speech on the same stage at Kleinhans Music Hall.

Now, each spring, Just Buffalo presents the Civil Writes Projects with a series of interconnected community events that open conversations, encourage reading and writing, and invite widespread community participation around BABEL visits from the world’s foremost Black and African American writers.

The 2024 Civil Writes Project will feature award-winning writer Kiese Laymon on April 25.

For more information or to apply, visit justbuffalo.org or call 716-832-5400.
