WHAT IS AN ARTIST SUPPORT GRANT
Amplify’s Artist Support Grants are designed to give artists the chance to experiment and create new work, develop new audiences, and exhibit outside the confines of larger institutional systems. By recognizing and awarding financial support to exceptional artists in the region, Amplify seeks to strengthen artists’ voices, advance their careers, and enhance Omaha’s profile as a place where artists can live and work.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS?
Grant recipients participate in two events that are free and open to the public. The first is a public program, led or organized by the grant recipient, that investigates their process and/or provides context and an opportunity to better understand their individual creative practice. Grant recipients also attend a special reception, alongside fellow awardees, at the end of the year.
WHAT ARE THE RESTRICTIONS?
Artist Support Grants have no restrictions. They are designed to provide financial support to increase the capacity of the artist’s practice. Funds may be used for any purpose and do not need to be tied to any specific project or body of work.
WHEN DO I APPLY?
Applications for 2020 Artist Support Grants will open in January 2020.
