516 Arts: Fulcrum FundDeadline: June 15, 2016
516 ARTS has been selected by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts to serve as a regranting organization in its Regional Regranting Program. Named the Fulcrum Fund, this opportunity will serve as a support structure to enable artists to expand existing work and pivot in new directions in creating and showcasing projects that inspire curiosity, engagement, and dialogue. The fund will serve as a springboard for artistic processes that are adventurous, experimental, and forward thinking, while celebrating projects that do not fit into the traditional museum and gallery systems.
Funded activities may include a new exhibition or exhibition series, the ongoing work of an arts venue or collective, a public art project, a one-time event or performance, publications directly related to the visual arts, an online project, an artist residency, a series of film screenings and more. In accordance with the mission of 516 ARTS to forge connections between art and audiences, the Fulcrum Fund will seek to support artists and projects that generate meaningful shared experiences and are created in a collaborative spirit.
Amount: $50,000 is available with grants of $2,000-$5,000 each.
Eligibility: Artists and collectives whose work centers around visual arts and who are based within an 80-mile radius of Albuquerque (including Santa Fe). Grants from the Fulcrum Fund are for non-501c3, self-organized artistic activity that has a public component.
Note: 516 Arts will provide two information sessions about the opportunity:
- Saturday, April 9, 10:00 am-12:00 pm at 516 ARTS, 516 Central Ave. SW, Albuquerque
- Saturday, April 30, 2:00-4:00 pm at Santa Fe Art Institute, 1600 St. Michael’s Drive, Santa Fe
