USk Reportage Grant

The USk Reportage Grant Program 2023 is now open to individual sketchers, chapters, and creative collaborators worldwide. Visual storytelling lies at the heart of the USk movement. Reportage is visual storytelling that focuses on contemporary events, telling their story through on-location drawings and a narrative formed by firsthand accounts, research and interviews. The program is designed to highlight the best examples of these efforts and to inspire new artist-reporters in our community.

Community Grants

USk chapters worldwide are invited to partner with a local community group (not-for-profit, school, art organization, city agency) to develop and implement a workshop for that group.
