Socially Engaged Art Funding Opportunities

After speaking with artists, commissioners, funders, local authorities, researchers, academics involved with socially engaged artistic practice at the start of the year, the Models of Validation Team applied for funding to address the following issues:

  • A lack of communication/communication is difficult between the people involved in socially engaged artistic practice and is hindering progress in the field.
  • A lack of connection between artists and funders in socially engaged artistic practice, which leads to frustration on both sides.
  • Isolation facing artists working in this way.

The opportunities below are designed to be flexible, properly funded, with relatively short application processes. I hope you will consider applying/share these to anyone you think might be interested!!

I have made a Q&A about the funding opportunities here, but if you have any other questions, please email me at rebecca@axisweb.org

The deadline for application is 3rd July at midnight.

If you want to read more about the work and research behind these applications see the blog post here.
