The Idea Fund Information Session
Hosted by Aurora Picture Show
Tuesday, September 11, 6PM
Location: Aurora Picture Show, 2442 Bartlett Street
The Idea Fund, a re-granting program administered through Aurora Picture Show, DiverseWorks ArtSpace and Project Row Houses, and funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, is proud to announce its fourth round of granting opportunities. The fund provides cash awards of $4,000 to ten Texas-based, artist-generated or artist-centered projects that exemplify the unconventional, interventionist, conceptual, entrepreneurial, participatory, or guerrilla artistic practices that occur outside of the traditional frameworks of support.
The Idea Fund is the second re-granting initiative of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, following the pilot program, Alternative Exposure, administrated by Southern Exposure in San Francisco, CA. It is structured to provide artists with quick access to substantial financial support for projects that might not otherwise have access to funding.
