Grants for Artists’ Practice
Deadline: October 15, 2022
In order to develop an art practice — an ongoing process of production based on conceptual and formal investigation — artists need time, stimulating input, access to technical skills, conversations with peers, and exchange with audiences. To facilitate these evolving processes, Mophradat has introduced a revised version of what was the Grants for Artists program to include two components: first, providing artists with flexible financial support that can be used towards their livelihood, ongoing research, and/or the realization of a particular proposal; and second, connecting the participating artists with their peers (from the selection committee) with whom they would engage in a structured dialogue over three sessions throughout the grant period.
For each edition, the program provides approximately ten grants of either US$2,500 or US$5,000 covering periods of research, residencies, production of new work, curating and presenting shows, amongst other forms of artistic work. The program is only open to those interested in an ongoing conversation with the professional peers that Mophradat is engaging for this purpose.
