Grit Fund Information Sessions and Workshops
The Grit Fund, administered by The Contemporary, provides 8-12 grants in amounts between $1,000–$6,000, totaling $50,000 annually. The Grit Fund supports unincorporated and collaborative artist-organized activity that contributes significantly to Baltimore's arts landscape but seldom qualifies for traditional funding. Established with generous support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Grit Fund expands Warhol’s Regional Regranting Program to the Mid-Atlantic, encouraging projects that generate opportunities and create platforms for artists to engage with each other and with the public. Join us for this information session to learn about eligibility and the application process. Information sessions are free and open to the public.
The Contemporary will lead three free information sessions and three free workshops. Each of the three info sessions will cover the same information and provide details on the Grit Fund application process, guidelines, eligibility, funding priorities, and more. Each of the three workshops focuses on a different topic. You are welcome to attend just the info session or workshop portion of each event, or both. While attending an info session and/or workshop is strongly encouraged, attendance is not required to apply for funding. No RSVP necessary.
