$5000 grants for visual art projects: Platforms Fund Info Session #2

The next info session is January 11th, 7pm @ Antenna’s Paper Machine, 6330 St. Claude Ave: Budgets and Beyond! Learn the guidelines for applying for a Platforms Fund grant with a special focus on crafting your budgets. The Platforms Fund will distribute $67,000 in grants in 2018! The Platforms Fund, a collaborative effort of Antenna, Ashé Cultural Arts Center, and Pelican Bomb in partnership with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, is excited to announce its 2018–19 cycle. The Fund will distribute a total of $67,000 in grants to a diverse array of artist-driven projects that are ambitious, accessible, and experimental in nature. To foster experimentation, the Fund will continue to grant project awards of up to $5,000, plus $1,500 research-and-development grants for projects in their earliest stages. Research-and-development grantees will be eligible to apply for up to $3,500 additional funds in the next grant cycle to help actualize their projects.

Applications are due January 31, 2018. We encourage anyone interested to attend at least one of the public info sessions (most successful applicants have attended at least one).
