Dreamer Instrument Access Program
Black Violin Foundation Inc. in partnership with Baroque Violin Shop is pleased to announce the Dreamer Instrument Access program.
Over the course of 2021 we will be granting Beginner and Advanced Student String instruments to young musicians that identify as Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color.
The objective of this program is to provide access to quality instruments for existing musicians of color, and to take away the cost burden of purchasing an instrument to prospective students who wish to begin their journey as classical musicians.
Dreamer Diversity Equity & Inclusion Grant
Here's to the Dreamers! A large part of Black Violin Foundation Inc.’s work is in the development of a diverse talent pool.
In order to build out equal racial representation in the classical arts, BVF Inc. has created the Dreamer Diversity Equity & inclusion Grant which seeks to provide financial support to aspiring young musicians that identify as Black Indigenous Persons of Color.
Grants of up to $2,500 will be made available to BIPOC youth who hope to either begin or continue their musical education.
