The Idea Fund
The Idea Fund provides up to 12 cash awards at three distinct levels: Spark ($1,000), Catalyst ($4,000), and Stimulus ($7,000) 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. Support is provided for individual artists, curators, collectives, collaboratives, or partnerships from the Houston metro area (Harris, Galveston, Brazoria, Fort Bend, Waller, Chambers, Liberty, and Montgomery counties).
