WHAT WILL A GVIAS GRANT COVER?

Art grants ONLY cover materials (consumables and fixed assets which are necessary to the art piece), and operational costs. These grants will not cover labor expenses including the artist’s time.

Fixed Assets (e.g. tools, structures, electronics) may be submitted, but should be specialized, essential to the functionality of the project, and should be a relatively small portion of the expense. (i.e. a $50 Arduino in an $800 project is reasonable. A $50 wood sculpture requiring an $800 band saw is not. Well, the saw is not, at least.)

Recall that tools and other fixed assets may be available for low-cost rent from a rental agency, or even a free loan from a community member. Don’t know a community member with a band saw? Ask on the various social media pages and email lists…people love to help a good art project

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

Any individual artist, team of artists or established group (for teams of artists, please have one person submit an application for the group) may apply.

HOW WILL GRANTS BE PAID?

Successful applicants will be asked to sign a contract in order to receive their grant. Micro grants will be paid out in full after submission of receipts.

A failure to execute your proposed art project may result in ineligibility for future grants.
