Announcing the 2022-23 Platforms Fund Grantees!
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. From an outstanding round of applicants, our jurors selected the following projects to be funded. Special thank you to our panel of jurors: Ron Bechet, Kayla Coleman, L. Kasimu Harris, Elizabeth Withstandley, Sha’Condria Sibley.
