How To Find Your Voice

Art is important. It can help us understand the world around us, who we are, our connection to nature and to our fellow human beings. As an artist, you carry a significant responsibility to help guide the world during this moment in which we find ourselves. But in order to do that, you must find ways to further your career and get your work into the world. Here are some opportunities to do just that.

Forman Arts Initiative and Philadelphia Foundation invite applications to Art Works. In their own words:

“Four Philadelphia-based artists will be selected annually to receive two-year grants of $25,000 per year. Grants can be used freely by artists. Some artists may wish to use the grant to support the development of new work while others may use it to pay for living or studio expenses. Artists will be chosen based on how closely their work aligns with Art Works’ programmatic goals.

For more information and to apply, visit the website. Deadline for applications is June 16.

SaveArtSpace is proud to present This Place Meant, a public art exhibition in New York City starting August 21, 2023, curated by Sadaf Padder.

This Place Meant is an open call to “third-culture kids, for the descendants of mass displacement forced to leave lush landscapes, fecund soils, rolling hills and expansive forests.” Artists are invited to submit their work until June 19. For more information, visit the website.

The Rural Regenerator Fellowship invites artists to apply for a two year peer learning exchange and an unrestricted $10,000 stipend. In their own words:

The Rural Regenerator Fellowship brings together individual artists, makers, and culture bearers, grassroots organizers, community development workers, public sector workers and other rural changemakers who are committed to advancing the role of art, culture and creativity in rural development and community building.

For more information, visit the website. Application deadline is June 20.
