Foundation for Arts Initiatives : Grant
Recent grants have focused on research and practices that address the escalating culture wars, the erosion of rights, censorship, and other conditions of constraint. FfAI is supporting individuals, collectives, and organizations whose work may be threatened by extreme conflict, repressive political contexts, public intolerance, or other circumstances that restrict access to funding.
The inquiry form will give you a chance to tell us briefly about your recent activities and future plans. You may submit an inquiry at any time. FfAI does not have fixed dates for receiving or reviewing submissions. If we have any questions or need more information, we will let you know.
Unfortunately, we are unable to respond directly to every inquiry. We will contact you if your organization is invited to submit a full proposal, or if you are selected for a Fund for Arts Research grant. If you don’t hear from us within four months, it means your inquiry has not been selected.
Individuals who are artists, activists, curators, critics, researchers, writers, or otherwise active in organizing projects in contemporary arts and culture may submit an inquiry for a Fund for Arts Research grant of $7,500. Based on your inquiry, we will let you know if you are selected to receive a grant. There is no additional application process.
Fund for Arts Research grants are awarded for research and research-focused travel directed toward specific areas central to FfAI’s ongoing concerns, including alternative forms of institutionality, the redefinition and use of archives, new applications for the commons, and the development of dynamic definitions of community, connectivity, and solidarity.
Grants are not awarded for scholarships or residency programs, and all research and travel funded by these grants must be independent of any institutional or professional obligations.
