Deadlines, Dates, & Deets!

The Art Grant Committee has the honor of awarding $90,000 in creation money!

Art Grants will be distributed across three application windows:

  1. Grant Window 1: Primary Sound Camps, Temple, and Large Art
  2. Grant Window 2: Badass Art (i.e. Theme Camp Art, Secondary Sound Camps, Small/Moderate Scale Art)
  3. Grant Window 3: More Badass Art

As a part of our effort to increase community participation and resources, the Art Grant Committee will aim to only award one grant per artist. We encourage those of you who work on multiple projects, or in collaboration with other artists, to empower different members of your team take the lead for each project.

Once all applications from unique individuals are exhausted, applications from artists who have already received grants this cycle may be considered.

The dates for the three grant windows are listed below.
