Idea Fund info sessions give artists a chance to hear from The Idea Fund’s administrators about the application process. This is a great opportunity for artists to ask questions before they apply.

ABOUT THE IDEA FUND

The Idea Fund is a re-granting program administered by a partnership of DiverseWorks, Aurora Picture Show and Project Row Houses and funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The Idea Fund supports individual artists, curators, collectives, collaboratives or partnerships in the greater Houston area. Grant recipients receive funding for projects that exemplify unconventional, participatory or social practice, conceptual, innovative or entrepreneurial, or activist artistic practices. Grants are competitive and awarded by a panel consisting of arts professionals from around the country and a past Idea Fund grant recipient.

GRANTS

The Idea Fund supports between 12-14 cash awards at three distinct levels: Spark ($1,000), Catalyst ($4,000) and Stimulus ($7,000). The majority of funds will be disbursed at the awards ceremony at the beginning of the year. Every grant recipient will be required to hold one public event or outreach activity in the greater Houston area and to submit a final report at the end of the year. The Idea Fund is a competitive grant process. Grant recipients are chosen by a panel of arts professionals and a past Idea Fund grant recipient.
