The Aftermath Project invites artists to apply for the 2022 grant cycle under the theme of 1492/1619 American Aftermaths. In their own words:
I can’t stress enough how much we’re looking forward to considering your projects related to the aftermaths of these key periods in American history. You don’t have to address both 1492 and 1619, but you do need to have a thoughtful proposal (and strong work) that shows your understanding of how these aftermaths still resonate today.
