Apply for a grant of up to $5000 to support your artistic project in New Orleans.
The Platforms Fund is a collaborative effort of Press Street, Ashé Cultural Arts Center, and Pelican Bomb to provide support for the development and presentation of self-organized artistic projects in and around New Orleans. The Platforms Fund seeks to emphasize New Orleans’ historical characteristics of creativity, collaboration, and resiliency, while pushing the boundaries of where community engagement and the dissemination of creative ideas can intersect.
The Platforms Fund will provide grants of up to $5000 to a diverse array of artist-driven projects that are ambitious, accessible, and experimental in nature. Grants will range from $1500 to $5000 and a minimum of eight awards will be distributed in 2016.
The Platforms Fund is part of a growing national network of regional re-granting programs supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation. The Foundation aims to support the independent creative activity of artists by partnering with leading artist-centered, visual arts organizations across the country.
Applications are due January 29, 2016. Visit the Platforms Fund website for more information and to apply.
