The Graham Foundation: Production and Presentation GrantsDeadline: February 25, 2019
The Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts makes project-based grants to individuals and organizations and producing exhibitions, events, and publications. The Foundation is interested in projects that investigate the contemporary condition, expand historical perspectives, or explore the future of architecture and the designed environment. The Foundation supports investigations in architecture; architectural history, theory, and criticism; design; engineering; landscape architecture; urban planning; urban studies; visual arts; and related fields of inquiry. The Foundation’s interest also extend to work being done in the fine arts, humanities, and sciences that expands the boundaries of thinking about architecture and space.
The Foundation’s priorities for grantmaking to organizations are to:
- Assist with the production and presentation of significant programs about architecture and the designed environment in order to promote dialogue, raise awareness, and develop new and wider audiences
- Support them in their effort to take risks in programming and create opportunities for experimentation
- Recognize the vital role they play in providing individuals with a public forum in which to present their work
- Help them to realize projects that would otherwise not be possible without the Foundation’s support
Amount: The maximum grant is $30,000.
Eligibility: Tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations. Under some circumstances the Foundation will make grants to other entities when there is clear evidence that the public interest will be served, for example, in the case of a publisher or an emerging organization that does not yet have tax exempt status.
