Artist Collective Art Project Funding Grants for Artists, Writers, Performers, Musicians in Los Angeles

The Artist Collective project is truly thinking outside the box with their Artists Collective  Los Angeles County  Medical Marijuana Delivery Service. Based in West Hollywood, the ArtistsCollectiveLA.org  Delivers Pot To Fund A Community Arts Organization.

Artists Collective is a different kind of medical marijuana service. They’re an art project in and of itself. They aspire to create a medical marijuana non-profit where a considerable percentage of their proceeds go toward funding grants for artists, writers, performers, and musicians.

What is the ” Micro Mecenat ” Arts Funding Platform!?

Micro Mecenat is an online platform in Japanese and English that applies the concept of micro funding to artist posted  projects.

“Mecenat” is a French word taken from Maecenas, a historic character famous for supporting artists and poets in the Roman era. Therefore a Mecenat is a sponsor or patron of the arts.

Rather than do the standard Kickstarter campaign seeking US funders your art project, try Micro Mecenat to connect with Japanese funders.

International Exhibition Opportunity—apexart, NYC, annually holds a worldwide open call for proposals for curated group exhibitions to be presented anywhere in the world other than New York City.From April 4 – May 2, 2012, apexart will accept 500-word creatively written proposals describing your idea for an exhibition. The proposal should be clearly written, with the major emphasis on explaining the concept, as the only instructions given to the more than 100 jurors from around the world is to, “identify the best exhibitions.” The city for the exhibition must be listed as well as the curator/organizer’s location of residence. Often there is a greater effect when exhibitions take place outside of a city center, where fewer people are involved in the commercial art world.Two winners selected by a “crowd sourcing” method will be in charge of a one-month apexart franchise with an up to $8,000 exhibition budget, an honorarium for the essay and organization of the show, and complete creative control with a few apexart guidelines. apex will also provide the necessary guidance and administrative support to make the exhibition happen as successfully as past exhibitions in Amman, Johannesburg, Stockholm, Los Angeles, Bangkok, and Mexico City. apexart will also print a mini-catalog in an edition of 9,000 with an essay from the curator distributed around the world to more than 100 countries and available online with all contacts, reviews, and press images.The apexart Franchise is an opportunity to bring an idea to fruition in a new place and to confirm that the center of the art world is wherever you are.
