The RJE Sprout Fund to support artists with the direct funds needed to complete projects in the next twelve months.
All artists – whether formally trained, self-taught, or whose creative work falls outside traditional art forms – are encouraged to apply. Artists are also encouraged to apply for funds for projects that involve their communities (e.g., art classes, art therapy, outreach, and non-traditional projects).
A total of $50,000 will be awarded in June 2021, but awards will continue to be administered throughout the calendar year on an ongoing basis.
Funds will be prioritized for artists working with marginalized and underserved audiences, topics, or subject matter.
