The Kindling Fund supports artist-organized projects that engage audiences and incorporate the visual arts in inventive and meaningful ways
The Kindling Fund distributes approximately $65,000 annually for individual project support grants, with awards ranging from $1,500–$5,000 each, to artists across the state of Maine. Focusing on work that embraces experimentation, supported Kindling Fund projects value unconventional engagement, critical dialogue, collaboration, and create new models for presenting artists’ work.
The Kindling Fund is administered by SPACE as part of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts’ Regional Regranting Program.
SPACE is not currently accepting applications for Kindling Fund program support grants. The deadline for 2021–22 applications was November 7, 2021.
Applications for 2022–23 Kindling Fund support grants will re-open autumn 2022.
