Kindling Fund Info Session
7:00pm on Zoom
Please join us for an information session about The Kindling Fund conducted by SPACE Gallery Executive Director Kelsey Halliday Johnson. The info session will run for about an hour. Kelsey will present a brief overview of the program, strategies for successful Kindling Fund grant applications, and time for a Q&A.
SPACE Gallery created The Kindling Fund to support the energy of Maine’s visual arts community by funding innovative, artist-organized projects that engage the public in ways that are both inventive and meaningful. The Kindling Fund values risk and experimentation, unconventional engagement, and critical dialogue, and encourages collaborative efforts to reach new audiences, increase public interaction, and create new models for presenting artists’ work.
The Kindling Fund supports artist-organized, visual arts-based projects that have a strong public component. The most competitive projects will be ones which don’t fit in established institutions or venues, occur in alternative spaces or use alternative practices. Preference will be given to projects that present work by multiple artists.
