Harpo Foundation Now Funding Individual Artist Grants

HARPO FOUNDATION is NOW FUNDING INDIVIDUAL ARTISTS DIRECTLY–they are pleased to announce an important change in the Foundation’s grant program. In 2013, starting with the April 5 deadline, the foundation will accept proposals from individual artists as well as from non-profit organizations. Previously, artists were unable to apply for direct support. This restriction has been lifted and artists may now apply on their own behalf using the same application procedures as non-profit organizations.DEADLINE TO SUBMIT A LETTER OF INQUIRY IS APRIL 5

Harpo Foundation receives many more applications than it is able to fund. Therefore, as a way to guide applicants through an open process, the foundation uses a 2-step application process to review proposals submitted by artists, non-profit institutions and fiscal sponsors.

Artworks for Change: Social and Environmental Issues and the Transformative Power of Art

As artists, we all have a good life working daily in our studios. I think it is good to take a moment to reflect upon the social problems and environmental concerns in the world outside the privacy of our studio practice.

With that in mind, I’d like to share these organizations and projects:

Artworks for Change is a non-profit arts organization in Oakland, California, that produces contemporary art exhibitions to address social and environmental issues.

The Creative Well and The Voices and Faces Project are American documentary and non-profit organizations created to bring the names, faces and stories of sexual violence and trafficking survivors to the attention of the public.
