Grants

The Platforms Fund is a collaborative effort of Antenna, Ashé Cultural Art Center, Junebug Productions and the Andy Warhol Foundation. The Andy Warhol Foundation Regional Regranting Program was established in 2007 to recognize and support the movement of independently organized, public-facing, artist-centered activity that animates local and regional art scenes but that lies beyond the reach of traditional funding sources. The program is administered by non-profit visual art centers across the United States that work in partnership with the Foundation to fund artists’ experimental projects and collaborative undertakings.
