WHAT IS A PUBLIC IMPACT GRANT?

Amplify’s Public Impact Grants are awarded after a submission review process to an individual artist, collaborative duo, or artist collective working toward realizing a large-scale, public facing project that responds to a specific concern within their immediate community. These $10,000 awards are designed to support artists and organizers working to address systemic issues and strengthen their communities.

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS?

Public Impact Grant recipients have one year from the date the grant is awarded to realize their project. Applicants must identify neighborhood associations, community boards, municipal bodies, businesses or other entities involved in their project; propose a timeline; and account for all expenses in a final report due at the end of the grant period.

 

*Applications for 2020 Public Impact Grants will open in Spring 2020. In the meantime, find answers to frequently asked questions about our Grants Program here.

Holly Kranker and John Cohorst, were awarded Amplify’s $10,000 2019 Public Impact Grant to support their project CAR>GO (Community Activated Resource on the GO).

CAR>GO will be used as a shared meeting and workspace for artists and creatives to exchange ideas, have conversations around issues of infrastructure, and collaborate on neighborhood projects. CAR>GO, a modified cargo container, will be designed as flexible workspace that can accommodate anything from group meetings to creative studio / project space.

CAR>GO also proposes alternatives to maintaining the status quo by rethinking our approach to building infrastructure and creating a space that's scaled down, made of repurposed materials, and powered by renewable energy and biofuels.
